Bargain van Arnon Grunberg

Immortality

In “The Case against Perfection” Michael J. Sandel writes: “The company’s Web site has announced a price reduction for cat cloning, which now costs a mere $32,000. If the price still seems steep, it comes with a money-back guarantee: ‘If you feel that your kitten doesn’t sufficiently resemble the genetic donor, we’ll refund your money in full with no questions asked.’”

I wonder how many kitten lovers would be willing to pay $32,000 for the immortality of their beloved pet. I would say it’s a bargain, but perhaps I overestimate immortality.
