August 2012 Bulletin

This Bulletin focuses on resources in which Israel is uniquely scarce and uniquely abundant.

The land of Israel was never blessed with water, and one of the world’s leading researchers in this field, Professor Yoav Kislev, provides a glimpse at how Israel is dealing with this vital lifeline. One natural resource that Israel has been blessed with is its children, and some findings from a major new Taub Center study on the country’s preschools are highlighted here. Finally, another area in which Israel stands out is its relatively low share of single-parent families. But as Professor Haya Stier finds, these Israeli families tend to be disproportionately poor.
