Israel’s Social Services 1985-86
Author: Israel Katz
July 17, 1986
This slim publication summarizes the findings of the Center’s annual publication, Changing Social Policy 1985-86.
It points to the current need for finding ways of trimming and containing public expenditure for human services by a partial transfer of the burden of funding more directly to all citizens with the current introduction of stronger redistributive measures and efficiency. Alternative and politically acceptable policies may not lead to dramatic reductions in the resources now used by Israel’s human services. However, some options can release material and non-material resources for what is now done inadequately and still must be done.
