comment The essence of a thing is in its Hebrew name?
@avi What about a tomato or a potato? Those words didn't exist in Hebrew until the 1500s (likely later). Also mercantilism :)

comment Product liability in halacha
@AviD the extraordinary part of the coffee case was that McDonald's made a calculated risk - They decided it was cheaper to keep the coffee hotter than safe and pay off lawsuits than to sell coffee at a normal temp and not deal with them.
