Judaism, Commerce, and Free Markets: An Interview with Isaac Lifshitz

Jewish economic thought is a rich tradition that Christian philosophers, theologians and economists can learn from and utilize in different ways.

In this interview, Professor Isaac Lifshitz articulates some of the main economic concepts of the Jewish tradition, the development of those concepts in Medieval Jewish thought, and how such thought might contribute to Christian attempts at economic theory. We also talk about the interesting and fruitful collaborative work between Christian and Jewish philosophers at the Shalem Center.
