Israel and the World Economy

ISS Distinguished Lecture presented by Assaf Razin, emeritus professor at the Eitan Berglas School of Economics at Tel Aviv University and visiting professor in the Department of Economics at UC Davis.

Anti-globalization sentiments are rising, especially in Europe and the United States, with the increasingly integrated global economy blamed for domestic economic distress. Assaf Razin argues that Israel offers a counterexample to this view, showing decisively positive economic effects of globalized finance, trade, and immigration. He offers a rigorous analysis of the role played by globalization in key episodes in the remarkable development of the Israeli economy.

Assaf Razin is a former professor at Cornell University, Professor Emeritus at the Eitan Berglas School of Economics at Tel Aviv University, and a research fellow at the NBER, CEPR, and CESifo. He is the author of Understanding Global Crises: An Emerging Paradigm and a coauthor of, among other books, The Decline of the Welfare State: Demography and Globalization and Migration and the Welfare State: Political- Economy Policy Formation, all published by the MIT Press. He is the recipient of the 2017 EMET Prize in Economics. He is also a fellow of the Econometric Society, and a research associate at IZA, Berlin.
