Aaron Levine, "Comparable Worth in Society and the Jewish Law", Tradition 23/1 (1987), 1-32. - The author adduces an economic analysis to demonstrate the weakness of the equity argument for comparable worth and the proposition that the group presumably to be helped by comparable worth will instead be at a disadvantage under it. Further he contends that the notion of comparable worth would impact negatively on marriages and encourage lifestyles contrary to Jewish values. (S.M.P.)
