What should be the role of money and markets in our society? Are there some things that money should not be able to buy? Should people be permitted to buy sex, votes, babies, citizenship, or college admission? What about buying and selling the right to pollute, procreate, immigrate, discriminate, or to hunt endangered species? Should we use markets to govern health care, education, privacy, or criminal law?

Taught by award-winning professor Michael J. Sandel, this course will consider what moral limits, if any, the law should impose on market exchanges. Drawing upon philosophy and contemporary moral and political controversies, we will attempt to determine what goods and social practices should not be up for sale.

The videos in this course come from the Institute for New Economic Thinking. With permission, we have curated an experience in which you can engage with these ideas alongside other learners.
