Nicholas D. Kristof recently wrote in the New York Times about "the marketization of everything":
"Does it bother you that an online casino paid a Utah woman, Kari Smith, who needed money for her sons education, $10,000 to tattoo its Web site on her forehead?
"Or that Project Prevention, a charity, pays women with drug or alcohol addictions $300 cash to get sterilized or undertake long-term contraception? Some 4,100 women have accepted this offer.
"Michael Sandel, the Harvard political theorist, cites those examples in What Money Cant Buy, his important and thoughtful new book. He argues that in recent years we have been slipping without much reflection into relying upon markets in ways that undermine the fairness of our society."
