Abstract:

This thesis examines Israels economic ascendance to one of the most technologically advanced states in the Middle East. The analysis reviews the immigration of Jews into Palestine and later Israel, the Israeli defense sector, relationships between Israel and key world powers, and Israeli economic development, political evolution, and policy choices. The results show that a unique cocktail of high-quality immigrants, effective government reforms and subsidies, and technological innovation created the foundation for Israels high-technology economy. All efforts were necessities due to lack of significant natural resource reserves. Consequently, the Israeli path to economic success could be replicated by relatively small and resource-lacking states.
