Regarding " 'Social' types wrong" by Nehemia Strasler, Ha'Aretz, May 26, 2005: Being neither an economist nor a fan of 'types' like Amir Peretz, I think that what Nehemia Strasler says makes sense: "...growth and going to work are necessary steps in the struggle against poverty and [ for? YDBO ] the improvement in the standard of living for the workers." Being both a dreamer and slightly cynical, I also cannot help wondering what this state's economy would look like with a real leadership that has some sort of long-term vision, with a true opposition, less corruption, definite borders, and without billions of shekels and dollars being wasted on an illegal and morally destructive occupation.
