LESSON TWO: SHOPPING ETHICALLY

In today’s society, it is natural to be concerned for the rights of a consumer, and less in vogue to worry about the interests of the vendor. In reality, however, good and evil is done by all of us. Because so much of society focuses on consumer rights, too often, customers are consumed (excuse the pun) by a sense of entitlement and fail to think about the ethics of their actions. This lesson will explore ethical issues that may arise while shopping: Is bargain hunting ethical and compatible with the Jewish value system? Is it a subtle form of taking advantage? What if the consumer understands that the vendor is unaware of the merchandise’s true value? Is it ethical to take advantage of a vendor’s liberal return policies? Is window shopping an unfair exploitation of a vendor? Judaism has much to teach society about our trips to the shopping mall and even our purchases from Zappos.com.
