This article reviews the female labour force participation rates (LFPR) of Jewish and Arab women in Israel from 1955 to 2017. One finding of the review is that the female Jewish LFPR are very high, while the female Arab LFPR are very low.

I present a comparative historical study of the economic growth in the four mandate territories of Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, and Trans-Jordan. In all four areas, the ruling western powers, Britain and France, attempted to introduce inclusive economic institutions with a strong emphasis on private property. These institutions advanced economic grow...

This paper reviews the benefits and costs of public-private partnerships (PPPs), and argues that there exists a basic problem with PPPs that government officials have a short run perspective, while the private companies have a long run perspective. This problem contributes to PPPs being more costly than traditional government projects but PPPs have...

In the twentieth century, there were great changes in lifestyles and the labor force. People began to live longer, women entered the labor force en masse, and people began to have a period of retirement before they died. In the twenty-first century, the increase in life expectancy is continuing, but, overall, the female labor force participation in...

This article presents a regression analysis of some of the factors that influenced the value of the Israeli shekel from 1999 to 2008. The regression results show that changes in domestic expectations for peace in Israel had a significant effect on the value of the shekel. These results combined with a review of the political and economic developmen...

This study examines the type and quality of institutions in Palestine and the correlation between the institutions and economic growth in Palestine from 1516 to 1948. Initially in the 16th century, with the Ottoman conquest of the area, institutions in Palestine involved de facto private user-rights. The level of expropriation by elites was low, an...

Economic growth in the twenty-first century offers the possibility to eliminate extreme poverty in the world. This article argues that such a wonderful achievement would not contradict the vision of Deuteronomy 15:11 because the verse should be understood as referring to relative poverty, which, the verse maintains will always remain in the world....

This article suggests that the law of Deuteronomy 23:25, 26, which allows all people unlimited access to fields, is referring to ownerless fields that have only two possible uses, as farmland or as passageways for travelers. If the value of the land as a pathway for travelers is greater than the value of the land as farmland, then the field will re...

Historically restrictions on interest rates are one of the most common examples of intervention in the market. It has recently been suggested that the biblical prohibition of interest was a primitive form of social insurance. This paper rejects this approach and argues that a better understanding of the prohibition of interest in the Pentateuch is...

The results from the regression show that the two most significant factors with regard to the growth of Israel's economy were the fluctuations in the peace process and the high real interest rates. The peace process affected the eco...

The results from 487 questionnaires of the reactions of consumers and sellers to price changes in the Israeli housing market show that the concern for fair prices exists by the purchase of homes. The survey results also show that consumers view price increases due to increases in costs as unfair if their only knowledge of the change in costs is fro...
