An examination of how markets change the value of goods and services traded upon them. It was illuminating for me to see his point that the emergence of market-based systems is a phenomenon that's really taken hold during my lifetime, especially since I feel like I've taken this for granted. Ultimately the book's conclusion is that the morality of markets should enter our public debate; I was a little disappointed, as I hoped for a conclusion more prescriptive and controversial.
