I.) Highlights in the development of Israel’s economy:

  • A population and GDP growing 650% and 4500% respectively;
  • A producer and exporter of farm and consumer goods carrying a chronic burden of foreign debt, turned into a developer and exporter of hi tech producer goods and services, accumulating international surpluses;
  • A currency running hyperinflation turned into hard currency in demand.

II.) Israel’s present day strength and weaknesses, as visualized in the recent OECD Report.
