"What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets"

program date: 
Wed, 05/09/2012

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher interviews Michael Sandel, author of "What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets." They'll talk about the difficult arguments missing from our public debates about the value being assigned by markets to nonmarket norms. 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?

Michael Sandel is a political philosopher and a professor at Harvard University. He is best known for the Harvard course 'Justice' which is available to view online, and for his critique of Rawls' A Theory of Justice in his Liberalism and the Limits of Justice (1982).

A complaint against Wells Fargo Bank was filed yesterday with the Delaware Attorney General and the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). According to the complaint, shareholders with concerns about the bank's investment and foreclosure practices were illegally denied access at last month's shareholder meeting at the company's headquarters in San Francisco.

A copy of the SEC filing was also delivered yesterday at the company's headquarters, as well as various Wells Fargo branches around the country. While shareholders are crying foul, Wells Fargo is denying some of the accusations.
