Riassunto: By use of the case study method, this book presents and analyzes moral dilemmas of the marketplace from the perspective of American law, secular business ethics, and Jewish law. The types of moral dilemmas with which are dealt are those that one encounters in everyday life in the roles of market participant and citizen. Economic analysis and public policy considerations are a feature of this work. Through Dr. Levine s interdisciplinary approach, this book shows that secular scholarship and economic analysis open up vistas, nuances, and subtleties for cases discussed in ancient and modern Jewish law sources. The moral dilemmas in this work are organized topically. The topics include: professional ethics; fair competition; marketing ethics; labor relations; privacy issues; public policy; and ethical issues in the protection of property.

He was ordained in Jewish civil and ritual law at the Rabbi Jacob Joseph School and is the spiritual leader of Brooklyn s Young Israel of Avenue J. A noted authority on Jewish commercial law, Professor Levine s research specialty is the interface between economics and Halakhah, especially as it relates to public policy and modern business practices. He has published widely on these issues, including four books and numerous monographs. His books include Free Enterprise and Jewish Law (1980); Economics and Jewish Law (1987); Economic Public Policy and Jewish Law (1993); and Case Studies in Jewish Business Ethics (2000). An associate editor of Tradition, Rabbi Levine also serves on an ad hoc basis on the Bet Din (rabbinical court) of the Rabbinical Council of America for disputes in monetary matters. Dr. Levine is a member of the World Jewish Academy of Science and the recipient of the Irving M. Bunim Prize for Jewish Scholarship. In 1982, he was respondent to Milton Friedman in the Liberty Fund symposium on the Morality of the Market.
