Michael Sandel on Values - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 179f
Values/Sandel: Sandel thesis: Certain goods change their moral quality if they are left to be allocated by the market. In such cases, the results of the market are not always desirable even with a unanimous (pareto-enhancing) market exchange. (1)
Markets/Sandel: Markets dominate our lives like never before - and in the course of that also our associated values. This is not the result of a conscious decision, but of a long-lasting, hardly noticeable process. No other organisational principle has produced so much prosperity and abundance in the production and distribution of goods. However, this also influences people's values.
Economy/Sandel: Economy has increasingly become a "ruling science".
, >Pareto-Optimum.
