2365 - Priceless: How is Value Created and How Do We Set Limits on the Sale of What We Value?
Michael Sandel, among others, points out that we are stretching the limits of what we used to believe should be for sale: he mentions a prison cell upgrade ($82 in Santa Ana, CA), access to a car pool lane while driving alone ($8 during rush hour in Minneapolis, MN), and hiring a surrogate mother to carry your baby to term ($24,000 in the U.S., $8,000 in India). Working from guided reflections on the way your own values have evolved and with readings by Sandel and others, this course will allow you to explore and critique various theories of value and their impact on public policies.
