"A striking combination of the wisdom of Jewish law and modern economics. In an age of business scandals and claims that universities neglect instilling moral values in their students, this extraordinary book serves a worthy purpose." —Dr. Dennis Carlton, Professor of Economics, University of Chicago Graduate School of Business; Co-editor, The Journal of Law & Economics ". . . Through his mastery of many disciplines, Rabbi Levine presents a Living Torah which gives constant direction through the vicissitudes of life. This exemplifies a genuine Sanctification of G-d's name [Kiddush Hashem]." —Rabbi David Cohen, Rav of Congregation Gvul Yaabetz and Ohel Foster Homes
