What is allowed and not allowed in a competitive business environment?  The fifth chapter analyzes the laws of interest.  It begins with a description of interest forbidden by the Torah and interest forbidden by rabbinic law.  Then the gemara translates the terms neshech (loss for the borrower) and marbit (gain for the lender) and explains that both terms of used to teach that there are two negative commandments associated with interest but there are no cases where one would apply without the other.
