The Talmud on defective merchandise

THIS WEEK'S DAF YOMI COLUMN BY ADAM KIRSCH IN TABLET: Caveat Emptor. In this week’s ‘Daf Yomi,’ Talmudic sages ask what it is safe to assume in matters of transactions within the law, and what must be specifically proven. The discussion moves into b. Bava Batra 6, which explores the obligations of buyer and seller. The sages did not accept the principle of caveat lector, "buyer beware."
