Economic and social policy in Israel: the first generation
recent years Israelis have discovered that no issue is more critical to the future of Israel than its economy. This discovery is part of the great change now taking place in Israel from the founding era to the era of settling in. This book represents an effort to understand what has gone before as Israel is about to open a new chapter in its political economy. The authors-Yosef Gabbay, David Kochav, Dabid Rodet, Raphael Roter, Moshe Sanbar, and Nira Shamai-are leading economists who have been personally involved in policy-making and implementation almost since the beginning of the state.
