Economic Morality and Jewish Law

Aaron Levine

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the distinctions between the Jewish law's treatment and Ronald Coase's approach in dealing with negative externalities. It emphasizes the argument of economic value should be attributable to the outputs derived from alternative social arrangements, taking into account its effects on all facets of life. It also provides an analysis on the application of Coase's theorem and Jewish law's approach on the following cases: the straying cattle case and breeding small cattle in Israel. In addition, this chapter discusses the following sub-components of Coase's theorem: the reciprocity principle, the trading principle, and the independence principle.

Keywords:   Coase's theorem, Ronald Coase, negative externalities, alternative social arrangements, alternative outputs, straying cattle case, reciprocity principle, trading principle, independence principle
