What's okay to buy and sell?

Aaron Ross Powell and Trevor Burrus talk with James Stacey Taylor, an Associate Professor of philosophy at the College of New Jersey and the author of Stakes and Kidneys: Why markets in human body parts are morally imperative and the forthcoming book Toxic Trade? An Unapologetic Defense of Universal Commodification, about what society thinks is okay to buy and sell. Buying and selling some things--like books, cars, or house--strike us as fine. But even the thought of trading money for things like love, babies, votes or organs makes many people uncomfortable or even angry.
