金钱不能买什么 | What Money Can't Buy by Michael J. Sandel

市场的角色和范围是现代政治所缺失的一场重大辩论。我们想要一个市场经济,还是市场社会?市场在公共生活和个人伦理扮演什么角色?我们怎样决定什么东西可以买卖,什么东西由非市场的价值掌握?哪里是金钱的法则行不通的地方?

在《金钱不能买什么:金钱与公正的正面交锋》中,迈克尔•桑德尔论述了当下最为突出的道德问题之一:在我们这个世界,任何事物都可以出售,这个世界难道没有问题?如果是这样,我们又该如何防止市场价值观侵蚀本不该由它们主导的领域?市场的道德界限又何在?

近几十年来,在我们生活的几乎每一个层面,医疗、教育、政府、法律、艺术、体育,甚至家庭生活和人际关系等,非市场的准则都已被市场价值排挤出局。桑德尔认为,我们已经从一个拥有市场经济的社会变成了市场化的社会。

在全球畅销书《公正》中,桑德尔用简洁而敏锐的阐述,就我们在日常生活中所遇到的道德困境娓娓道来,展现了大师级的拿捏能力。在《金钱不能买什么:金钱与公正的正面交锋》一书中,他发起了一场我们这个“市场驱动时代”所缺失的争论:在民主社会中,市场应扮演什么角色;道德和公共的善为市场所不敬,金钱所不及,我们怎样才能够保护它们?

Should we pay children to read books or to get good grades? Should we allow corporations to pay for the right to pollute the atmosphere? Is it ethical to pay people to test risky new drugs or to donate their organs? What about hiring mercenaries to fight our wars? Auctioning admission to elite universities? Selling citizenship to immigrants willing to pay?

In What Money Can't Buy, Michael J. Sandel takes on one of the biggest ethical questions of our time: Is there something wrong with a world in which everything is for sale? If so, how can we prevent market values from reaching into spheres of life where they don't belong? What are the moral limits of markets?

In recent decades, market values have crowded out nonmarket norms in almost every aspect of life—medicine, education, government, law, art, sports, even family life and personal relations. Without quite realizing it, Sandel argues, we have drifted from having a market economy to being a market society. Is this where we want to be?

In his New York Times bestseller Justice, Sandel showed himself to be a master at illuminating, with clarity and verve, the hard moral questions we confront in our everyday lives. Now, in What Money Can't Buy, he provokes an essential discussion that we, in our market-driven age, need to have: What is the proper role of markets in a democratic society—and how can we protect the moral and civic goods that markets don't honor and that money can't buy?
