The political philosopher Michael Sandel (2012) has recently argued compellingly for more attention to the moral limits of markets, arguing that market values can crowd out other values we should care about. Meanwhile, conservative advocates for welfare reform, such as the Australian Aboriginal leader Noel Pearson, have raised concerns about the impact of long-term welfare receipt on community values. Pearson’s argument about welfare can be articulated in similar terms to Sandel’s argument about markets. Pearson maintains that in heavily disadvantaged communities – such as the Aboriginal communities of Cape York Peninsula – the state’s provision of non-contributory welfare can crowd out important values such as trust, respect, care for the weak and mutual help as well as self-reliance and hard work. Though Sandel’s and Pearson’s arguments find receptive audiences on different ends of the political spectrum, the parallels between their arguments are striking. The article seeks to promote greater scholarly engagement with Pearson’s moral critique of welfare while expressing scepticism about one of the key correctives he proposes.

Mercenaries can be paid to fight a country’s wars; students can be paid to get good grades. Mr. Sandel explores whether there’s something wrong with a world in which everything seems to be for sale. The author of international bestseller “Justice” explores how to get market values out of areas of life where he says they don’t belong.
He discusses this issue with Manhattan Institute Fellow Nicole Gelinas, the author of “After the Fall: Saving Capitalism from Wall Street and Washington.”

Lord Patten Lecture on Social Renewal — What Money Can’t Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets Michael J Sandel, Harvard University
8th May 2013
In this talk Professor Sandel examines how market values have come to define our lives in ways that aren’t good for democracy or the quality of public or private life. He asks whether market values have spread into spheres of life where they don’t belong and if this is corrupting ourselves, our society and our environment. Among the issues discussed are whether we should pay children to do their homework or if it is ethical to pay people to test risky new drugs or to donate their organs.
