Welcome to the Nishma Moral Hazard Discussion Forum blog.
MORAL HAZARD, a regular column on the Nishma website, looks at Halachic issues from an economic mindset. Behind the pragmatics of economics is the scientific process of economics, and it stems from a unique outlook on society and decision-making, providing an effective language for investigations into Halacha. If you have a comment on an article within this column, we invite you place your comments here; then we invite everyone to join the discussion.
