For Michael Sandel, who teaches political science at Harvard, in the past 30 years the US has drifted from a market economy to a market society. For American citizens, it’s all about money: access to education, access to justice, political influence, Sandel believes.
Michael Porter also teaches at Harvard, but at its Business School, where he leads the Institute on Strategy and Competitiveness. He points out there is an interesting intersection between society and corporate interests. The corporate world can and should try to solve global problems like climate change and access to water.
