Socioeconomic Inequality in Israel : A Theoretical and Empirical Analysis (Hardcover)
About this item
Israel is an interesting case among industrialized countries as the level of inequality is high across a number of measures. Israel is an extremely divided society along ethnic, national, religious, and political lines. These divisions produce unique conditions within which the effects of factors such as gender, class, region, age, and education are highly contextualized. Income inequality in Israel is among the highest in the Western world, and, as happened in many developed economies, it has risen considerably in recent years. Similarly, the poverty rate and income gap between different income classes are also quite high. This book uses different methodologies to explore inequality in a number of areas of Israeli society and focuses on Israel's diverse populations and communities. Conclusions drawn here expand our knowledge and understanding of the various mechanisms through which inequality is produced and maintained in Israel and the role that state-policies play in minimizing or increasing the impact of these mechanisms.
