Pressestimmen

“Michael Sandel's What Money Can't Buy is a great book and I recommend every economist to read it, even though we are not really his target audience. The book is pitched at a much wider audience of concerned citizens. But it taps into a rich seam of discontent about the discipline of economics.... The book is brimming with interesting examples which make you think.... I read this book cover-to-cover in less than 48 hours. And I have written more marginal notes than for any book I have read in a long time.” ―Timothy Besley, Journal of Economic Literature

“Provocative. . . What Money Can't Buy [is] an engaging, compelling read, consistently unsettling and occasionally unnerving. . . [It] deserves a wide readership.” ―David M. Kennedy, Democracy

“Brilliant, easily readable, beautifully delivered and often funny. . . an indispensable book on the relationship between morality and economics.” ―David Aaronovitch, The Times (London)

“Sandel is probably the world's most relevant living philosopher.” ―Michael Fitzgerald, Newsweek

“In a culture mesmerized by the market, Sandel's is the indispensable voice of reason…. What Money Can't Buy. . . must surely be one of the most important exercises in public philosophy in many years.” ―John Gray, New Statesman

“[An] important book. . . Michael Sandel is just the right person to get to the bottom of the tangle of moral damage that is being done by markets to our values.” ―Jeremy Waldron, The New York Review of Books

“The most famous teacher of philosophy in the world, [has] shown that it is possible to take philosophy into the public square without insulting the public's intelligence. . .[He] is trying to force open a space for a discourse on civic virtue that he believes has been abandoned by both left and right.” ―Michael Ignatieff, The New Republic

“[Sandel]is such a gentle critic that he merely asks us to open our eyes. . . Yet What Money Can't Buy makes it clear that market morality is an exceptionally thin wedge. . . Sandel is pointing out. . . [a] quite profound change in society.” ―Jonathan V. Last, The Wall Street Journal

What Money Can't Buy is the work of a truly public philosopher. . . [It] recalls John Kenneth Galbraith's influential 1958 book, The Affluent Society. . .Galbraith lamented the impoverishment of the public square. Sandel worries about its abandonment--or, more precisely, its desertion by the more fortunate and capable among us. . .[A]n engaging, compelling read, consistently unsettling. . . it reminds us how easy it is to slip into a purely material calculus about the meaning of life and the means we adopt in pursuit of happiness.” ―David M. Kennedy, Democracy: A Journal of Ideas

“[Sandel] is currently the most effective communicator of ideas in English.” ―The Guardian

“Michael Sandel is probably the most popular political philosopher of his generation. . .The attention Sandel enjoys is more akin to a stadium-filling self-help guru than a philosopher. But rather than instructing his audiences to maximize earning power or balance their chakras, he challenges them to address fundamental questions about how society is organized. . . His new book [What Money Can't Buy] offers an eloquent argument for morality in public life.” ―Andrew Anthony, The Observer (London)

What Money Can't Buy is replete with examples of what money can, in fact, buy. . . Sandel has a genius for showing why such changes are deeply important.” ―Martin Sandbu, Financial Times

“One of the leading political thinkers of our time…. Sandel's new book is What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets, and I recommend it highly. It's a powerful indictment of the market society we have become, where virtually everything has a price.” ―Michael Tomasky, The Daily Beast

“To understand the importance of [Sandel's] purpose, you first have to grasp the full extent of the triumph achieved by market thinking in economics, and the extent to which that thinking has spread to other domains. This school sees economics as a discipline that has nothing to do with morality, and is instead the study of incentives, considered in an ethical vacuum. Sandel's book is, in its calm way, an all-out assault on that idea…. Let's hope that What Money Can't Buy, by being so patient and so accumulative in its argument and its examples, marks a permanent shift in these debates.” ―John Lancaster, The Guardian

“Sandel is among the leading public intellectuals of the age. He writes clearly and concisely in prose that neither oversimplifies nor obfuscates…. Sandel asks the crucial question of our time: ‘Do we want a society where everything is up for sale? Or are there certain moral and civic goods that markets do not honor and money cannot buy?'” ―Douglas Bell, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“Deeply provocative and intellectually suggestive…. What Sandel does…is to prod us into asking whether we have any reason for drawing a line between what is and what isn't exchangeable, what can't be reduced to commodity terms…. [A] wake-up call to recognize our desperate need to rediscover some intelligible way of talking about humanity.” ―Rowan Williams, Prospect

“There is no more fundamental question we face than how to best preserve the common good and build strong communities that benefit everyone. Sandel's book is an excellent starting place for that dialogue.” ―Kevin J. Hamilton, The Seattle Times

“Poring through Harvard philosopher Michael Sandel's new book. . . I found myself over and over again turning pages and saying, 'I had no idea.' I had no idea that in the year 2000, 'a Russian rocket emblazoned with a giant Pizza Hut logo carried advertising into outer space.'. . . I knew that stadiums are now named for corporations, but had no idea that now 'even sliding into home is a corporate-sponsored event.'. . . I had no idea that in 2001 an elementary school in New Jersey became America's first public school 'to sell naming rights to a corporate sponsor.' Why worry about this trend? Because, Sandel argues, market values are crowding out civic practices.” ―Thomas Friedman, New York Times

“An exquisitely reasoned, skillfully written treatise on big issues of everyday life.” ―Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“In his new book, Michael Sandel --the closest the world of political philosophy comes to a celebrity -- argues that we now live in a society where ‘almost everything can be bought and sold.' As markets have infiltrated more parts of life, Sandel believes we have shifted from a market economy to ‘a market society,' turning the world -- and most of us in it -- into commodities. And when Sandel proselytizes, the world listens…. Sandel's ideas could hardly be more timely.” ―Rosamund Urwin, Evening Standard (London)

Pressestimmen

Praise for Michael Sandel and What Money Can't Buy: 

“Provocative and intellectually suggestive. . . amply researched and presented with exemplary clarity, [it] is weighty indeed - little less than a wake-up call to recognise our desperate need to rediscover some intelligible way of talking about humanity.”—Rowan Williams, Prospect

 

“Brilliant, easily readable, beautifully delivered and often funny. . . an indispensable book.”—David Aaronovitch, Times

 

“Entertaining and provocative.”—Diane Coyle, Independent

 

“Poring through Harvard philosopher Michael Sandel's new book. . . I found myself over and over again turning pages and saying, 'I had no idea.' I had no idea that in the year 2000. . . 'a Russian rocket emblazoned with a giant Pizza Hut logo carried advertising into outer space,' or that in 2001, the British novelist Fay Weldon wrote a book commissioned by the jewelry company Bulgari. . . I knew that stadiums are now named for corporations, but had no idea that now 'even sliding into home is a corporate-sponsored event'. . . I had no idea that in 2001 an elementary school in New Jersey became America's first public school 'to sell naming rights to a corporate sponsor.'”—Thomas Friedman, New York Times

 

“A vivid illustration ... Let's hope that What Money Can't Buy, by being so patient and so accumulative in its argument and its examples, marks a permanent shift in these debates.”—John Lanchester, Guardian

 

“In a culture mesmerised by the market, Sandel's is the indispensable voice of reason. . . if we. . . bring basic values into political life in the way that Sandel suggests, at least we won't be stuck with the dreary market orthodoxies that he has so elegantly demolished.”— John Gray, New Statesman

 

What Money Can't Buy is replete with examples of what money can, in fact, buy ... Sandel has a genius for showing why such changes are deeply important.”—Martin Sandbu, Financial Times

 

“Sandel is a political philosopher who makes us think about what it means to be good.”—Andrew Anthony, The Guardian

 

“Ed Miliband has been reading What Money Can’t Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets, Michael Sandel’s elegant and provocative critique of 'the era of market triumphalism.' According to the Harvard professor, 'Our only hope of keeping markets in their place is to deliberate openly and publicly about the meaning of the goods and social practices we prize. . . the question of markets is really a question about how we want to live together.' It is no surprise that this particular monograph should appeal to the Labour leader at this particular moment, when precisely the same questions — and more besides — are being confronted, for the highest stakes, across a continent.”—Matthew d'Ancona, Evening Standard

“What Mr. Sandel does not offer is prescriptions for rolling back the clock. He is such a gentle critic that he merely asks us to open our eyes. . .Yet What Money Can't Buy makes it clear that market morality is an exceptionally thin wedge.”—Jonathan V. Last, The Wall Street Journal

“Sandel is probably the world’s most relevant living philosopher, thanks to the hugely popular course he teaches at Harvard, ‘Justice’ . . . To make his argument Sandel stays focused on the everyday; he’s a practical philosopher. He asks what it says about us that we employed more mercenaries than U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan? What about the idea that we should sell immigration rights? Does that cheapen the idea of citizenship?”—Michael Fitzgerald, Newsweek

“There is no more fundamental question we face than how to best preserve the common good and build strong communities that benefit everyone. Sandel's book is an excellent starting place for that dialogue.”—Kevin J. Hamilton, The Seattle Times

“Sandel. . . sounds the alarm that the belief in a market economy diminishes moral thought. . . An exquisitely reasoned, skillfully written treatise on big issues of everyday life.”—Kirkus Review

Von Felix Richter TOP 500 REZENSENT am 30. November 2012

Michael J. Sandels neues Buch führt uns vor Augen, wie sich im Verlauf der letzten zwei bis drei Jahrzehnte Marktdenken mehr oder weniger unbemerkt immer neue Bereiche unseres Zusammenlebens durchdrungen hat, die bis dahin von ethischen und moralischen Kriterien reguliert wurden.

Im Gegensatz zu seinem Standardwerk "Justice", in dem er es seinen Lesern überlässt, sich ihre eigenen Meinungen zu den jeweiligen Fragen zu bilden, bezieht er hier in beinahe nostalgischer Weise Stellung.

Zwei Aspekte stehen dabei im Vordergrund: Zum einen werden die erworbenen materiellen oder immateriellen Güter in ihrem Wert beschädigt, wenn sie mit einem Preisetikett versehen werden. Deshalb kann man keine Nobelpreise und Doktortitel kaufen, letztere zumindest nicht offiziell. In eine ähnliche Richtung gehen auch die zitierten Untersuchungen, die zeigen, dass Gemeinsinn und Leistungsbereitschaft erstaunlicherweise zurückgehen, wenn sie durch monetäre Incentives beeinflusst werden.

Zum anderen werden vermeintlich freiwillig handelnde Personen durch die finanzielle Vergütung ausgebeutet und ihrer Würde beraubt. Das gilt nicht nur für den indischen Bauern, der seine Niere verkauft, um seine Tochter verheiraten zu können, sondern auch für Alte oder Kranke, die ihre Lebensversicherung gegen einen Teil der Versicherungssumme an Investoren abtreten, die anschließend darauf hoffen, das sie möglichst bald ins Gras beißen. Ein Geschäft ist ohnehin immer dann moralisch fragwürdig, wenn eine Partei aus einer Notlage heraus handelt.

Natürlich sind nicht alle Beispiele so eindeutig verwerflich.

I have read the book in original English version and was rather disappointed. The short promising introduction on Markets and Moral (10 pages) is followed by 190 pages describing the commercialization effects on the US society. The author does not offer any solutions nor any proposals, it just ends up with general questions like " Do we want a Society where everything is up for sale? In my opinion the book should be titled " What Money Can Buy - The Immoral Limits of Markets"
For me a really disappointing read.

Bin über eine Fernsehsendung auf den Autor (und das Buch) aufmerksam geworden.
Das Thema wird anhand zahlreicher Beispiele anschaulich dargelegt. Aufgrund der Nationalität des Autors sind diese Beispiele allerdings eher amerkianophil-lastig (which shouldn't pose a problem to those, who read this book in English and are genereally interested in Amercan aspects of life)

Auf "What's the right thing to do" bin ich über die SPIEGEL Bestseller Liste gekommen und ich war begeistert. Das war mein erstes ernsthaftes Werk zu rechtsphilosophischen Fragestellungen und ich habe viel gelernt. Auch Englisch - und trotzdem habe ich mir sogleich die deutsche Version dazugekauft.

"What Money can't buy" vom gleichen Autor hat mich dagegen enttäuscht. Mit viel Populismus greift Michael J. Sandel echte oder empfundene Missstände auf und wer würde ihn da nicht zustimmen - aber die Qualität des zuvor genannten Buches erreicht er nicht. Trotzdem ist es absolut lesenswert - nicht nur für juristisch Interessierte, sondern auch für Menschen, die mehr über die USA erfahren möchten. Und es ist einfacher zu lesen und zu verstehen als "What's the right thing ...".

Mein Vorschlag wäre daher, beide Texte zu kaufen, aber mit "What Money can't buy" anzufangen. Es kann nur besser werden.

In the U.S. Congress, some public can listen to the debate, but for the days you will have to wait your turn. The solution to that is offered by the company through which you rent a person who would stand in line for you. If you're a lobbyist and you need to listen very important discussion time of some homeless will be helpful who would thereby earn his $ 50 Something innocuous like standing in queue, as the most experienced, is particularly worrying in China where you stand in line for days or you have to pay the priority. At the hospital.

The issue of standing in the queue is the subject of the first chapter of the book written by most famous Harvard political philosopher Michael Sandel. After the hugely successful 'Justice' Sandel explores and discusses the moral limits of markets. In the introduction he is defending against possible sentence that the book criticizes market economy: "The difference of the market economy is the following - the market economy is a good tool to increase productivity, but market society is a way of life in which the market value pervades all aspects of human endeavor." The era of market triumphalism ended, and since then things have started in the wrong direction; from the beginning of the crisis the public, instead to banks and the stock exchange speculators, turned anger to the government, to the politicians.

Why the issue of standing in queue is worrying? Economists, however, say that standing in queues is inefficient waste of time, shows that the offer did not meet the demand as a basic rule of economics. Pay someone to stand in line for you will improve efficiency by making people put a price on their time. But is it moral to look at it in this way, dividing people into those who can afford it and the other ones?
