A Just Read Book Club with Margerit Roger

By Tessa Blaikie Whitecloud
September 29, 2016

Wednesday mornings all February 10am – 12pm
This book group will be discussing Michael J. Sandel’s book, What Money Can’t Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets. We’ll see from Sandel’s examples where markets and morals bump into each other, and explore some provocative situations that reveal the kinds of things that have become commericalized around the globd. Did you know that in some countries you can purchase the services of someone to make an apology for you? Or, that in some places you can hire a homeless person to stand in line for you? But where do we draw the line? Sandel poses for this and other interesting questions that give us pause to consider the kind of society we want.
All proceeds from this book club are donated to 1JustCity, you’ll also get to relate what you read to the work you help us do! Register Here NOW!
