The study, conducted by the institution’s president Prof. Dan Ben-David, chronicles Israel’s unique socioeconomic story – what Ben-David refers to as the country’s “gigantic missed policy opportunity” – detailing some of the fundamental changes necessary for implementing a positive change in direction.
