Sandel's overall point is that injecting market thinking into every area of civic and individual life cheapens our relationships and corrupts our society. This is a very important point to make, and one that still doesn't seem to have sunk in even after the financial crisis. His writing is clear and accessible, but he just keeps making the same point over and over again with different examples. It didn't really feel like I needed to read the whole book, but then again, I'm not someone who needs to be convinced.
