The Heinz Dilemma
"Heinz Steals the Drug
In Europe, a woman was near death from a special kind of cancer. There
was one drug that the doctors thought might save her. It was a form of
radium that a druggist in the same town had recently discovered. The drug
was expensive to make, but the druggist was charging ten times what the
drug cost him to make. He paid $200 for the radium and charged $2,000
for a small dose of the drug.
The sick woman's husband, Heinz, went to everyone he knew to borrow the
money, but he could only get together about $ 1,000 which is half of what
it cost. He told the druggist that his wife was dying and asked him to sell it
cheaper or let him pay later. But the druggist said: "No, I discovered the
drug and I'm going to make money from it." So Heinz got desperate and
broke into the man's store to steal the drug-for his wife. Should the
husband have done that? (Kohlberg, 1963)."
