Do we want a society where everything is up for sale? Where do markets belong and where do they undermine values worth caring about?
Almost everything is up for sale: personal relationships, health, education, politics...
We have somehow come to accept that market mechanisms are a neutral tool to solve societal problems. Adopt a child for 1€/month to stop poverty? Put a price on nature to save it from environmental destruction?
If money governs access to the essentials of the good life like health and education it sharpens inequality. Market mechanisms are not neutral – they can undermine our moral values.
We need to start questioning the role of markets and money in our society.
