Moral Hazard
Economics in the Talmud

A town has nine butchers selling kosher meat, and one selling non-kosher meat. If a stranger buys from one, but forgets which one, then the doubt renders the meat forbidden; but if he found it on the street, he may eat it. We will discuss this ruling -- which occurs well over a dozen times in the Talmud in various contexts - in light of the modern economic concept of "moral hazard", which lies at the heart of the insurance business
