The israeli dilemma over economic discrimination and labor-market competition

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


While Nitzan and Bichler illustrate in Chapter 3 how the core conglom­ erates in Israel have created structures which allow them “to protect their possessions o f opportunities to acquire.. .superior resources,”3 we will inves­tigate the structural dynamics that cause ethnic inequalities on the socioeconomic level. For example, workers from the superordinate group who are employed in lower-status jobs tend to support policies meant to confine minority workers and entrepreneurs. While the elite business group is most concerned with controlling international financing mechanisms, the average Jewish Israeli voter wants legal regimes that support biased market structures at occupational, social, and residential levels.
