Michael Sandel (2012)

In his book, What Money Can't Buy, Michael Sandel examines one of the biggest ethical questions of our time: What is the proper role of markets, and how can we protect the moral and civic goods that markets do not honour and money cannot buy? Sandel is a professor at Harvard, delivering a massively popular course on justice. In 2010, China Newsweek named him the 'most influential foreign figure of the year' in China. His event at Edinburgh International Book Festival was one of our fastest selling events in 2012. This is an excerpt of that event, filmed live in August 2012.
