Money, Markets, and Morals

Develop ethical reasoning skills as you consider the moral limits of markets.

Course description

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.

What you’ll learn

  • The ways in which markets have crowded out non-market spaces and norms.
  • To reflect about the moral limits – if any – of market norms.
  • The main philosophical arguments on how goods ought to be allocated.
  • How to clearly articulate a philosophical argument about the allocation of goods and the moral boundaries of markets in our societies.
