About this book
The "Sunday Times" bestseller, now in paperback. It looks at how our culture is mesmerised by the market, showing that we have drifted from having a market economy to being a market society.
Should we financially reward children for good marks? Is it ethical to pay people to donate organs? What about hiring mercenaries to fight our wars, outsourcing inmates to for-profit prisons or selling citizenship? In this title, the author asks: Isn't there something wrong with a world in which everything is for sale?
