Following Israel’s fifth national election in 3-and-a-half years, join Shoresh Institution president, Professor Dan Ben-David, one of Israel’s leading economists, for an eye-opening, big-picture, perspective of the domestic root (shoresh) challenges posing existential threats in the long-run.

The talk is modeled on briefings that Prof. Ben-David regularly provides Israel’s top leadership from across the political spectrum, as well as to key opinion shapers and organizations.

A selection of Israeli wines and appetizers will be served!

About the Shoresh Institution:

The Shoresh Institution, whose name is derived from the Hebrew word for ‘root,’ is Israel’s only independent, non-partisan, socioeconomic policy think-tank whose sole raison d’être is its focus on the source, and long-term implications of Israel’s internal, existential long-run socioeconomic challenges. The Shoresh Institution provides evidence-based analyses—essential for strategic perspectives and transformative policies at the national level—to Israel’s leading policymakers and the general public to assist in moving the country towards a sustainable long-term trajectory that raises Israel’s living standards while reducing disparity among its citizens.

About Professor Dan Ben-David:

Professor Dan Ben-David (Ph.D. in economics, University of Chicago) founded and heads the Shoresh Institution for Socioeconomic Research and is a senior faculty member at Tel-Aviv University.

Professor Ben-David was named “Person of the Year” by the Calcalist newspaper and was included three times (most recently in 2019) in Haaretz-TheMarker newspaper’s list of the 100 most influential people in Israel.
