Would you pay extra for better health care and faster highways? Take our test

TED Ideas Lab, a partnership between The Globe and Mail and TED, uses trending TED Talks to spark debate and discussion about new ideas. Join the conversation on Twitter with #GlobeTED. Read the related debate at tgam.ca/MarketsDebate and find more from the series at tgam.ca/globe-debate.

What role should money and markets play in our society? Cash and credit can buy just about anything material in Canada, but should access to premium public services such as education and health care be available for a price? Decide below how you think our society should be. Then choose what you think you would do in certain situations if you had the money. See where other Globe readers stand and find out whether you're the same person in theory as in practice.
