What money can't buy is an essay written by philosopher Michael Sandel an ethics expert. Sandel is also a college teacher at Harvard and his classes on justice are available in internet and later become a best selling book. As a philosopher Mr Sandel has more questions than answers and he explores the limits of what can be sold and if anything should have a market value. Is selling a kidney ok? What about selling the right to change the name of a known stadium, a subway station, or even to name a new born baby? Can I bet on someone chance of dying next year? The market logic that everything has a price and can be sold is challenged many times and in many ways. I encourage reading first his previous book "Justice" as it covers many ethical problems that is brought again here. It was not the purpose of the book to get a conclusion in any specific situation but to focus on the ethics and moral similarities to events that may seem completely disconnected. I live near São Paulo that has prohibited large billboard on building sides, and restricted the size of store front panels. That law reduced visual pollution and made the city more pleasant to live, however many people lost their job after after this law. The topic is not easy, and no simple answers are available, bringing this discussion to highest level, instead of keeping it on each case is the best that the author did to this important subject
