Economics and ethics: What is stealing?

featuring Richard Denniss

What is stealing?

Is it ok to eat a grape without paying for it but not an apple? What is the dividing line between fairly sampled goods, readily available goods and stealing items to which you have no right?

In the third installment of Richard’s ‘Economics and Ethics’ chat with ABC666, he discusses the point that of course theft is bad but it’s up society to define what theft is, and there are grey areas that we don’t want to admit.
