The Privatization Revolution and Social Inequality Policy in Israel

By Daniel Gutwein

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), May 2003

The author discusses the rising incidence of poverty and the worsening of its manifestations in Israel. He argues that these are the result of economic and social policies aimed at destroying the welfare state from both right-wing and left-wing governments from the past three decades. He charges the Israeli left with adopting an agenda focused on economic growth and social equality.
