Working Together: Economy, Technology, and Careers in Israel
The Israeli economy has its earliest roots in socialist ideology, but over the years it has taken a more free–market approach to its development. The core Israeli character of creativity, directness, and a willingness to take risks inspires the country s economic progress. Despite few natural resources and surrounding hostile countries, Israelis have built a strong economy that provides the world with some of its most cutting edge technology. Israeli innovation is evident in fields from mobile and Internet technologies to science which improves access to food and water around the globe. However, not all Israelis have found their place in this vibrant workforce. Because Israel understands its most vital natural resource is its people, the country is working to expand economic opportunity and extend the entrepreneurial spirit with all its citizens.
