1. "All debts, except those of foreigners, were to be remitted"

Did it ever occur to you law for Jews, and another for non-Jews, is racist? "beasts of burden, the slaves, and the foreigner" "Should we let the foreign workers rest on Shabbat and be their "Shabbat Jews"?"
2. Great Idea
Christy ,   Boston, US   (01.28.14)
I have wondered how the world would be different if this was followed world-wide. --- The number of people forced into poverty due to debt has been enormous - as has the number of people enriched by the debt of other people. --- How many people have lost their jobs because their companies have folded due to debt? --- People would have to produce real goods and services instead of just creating wealth on paper. --- I always thought this was a great idea and was sorry never to see it practiced.
