Abstract

This chapter analyses current problems facing the Israeli economy and its historical development. In recent years Israel has experienced relatively fast economic growth, the remarkable development of high technology as well as financial stability. Despite these achievements the country suffers from poverty, income inequality, inadequate public services and infrastructure, as well as a lack of competition on local markets.
