"Dan Senor, co-author of 'Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel's Economic Miracle,' discusses with CNBC how Israel has managed to become a leader in business innovation."
It is no wonder that Jews excel in innovation - look at the number of Jewish scientists worldwide. The real question is, how could the government stifle business in Israel so that Israel is not an R&D lab for foreign companies, with only a handful of domestic mega-corporations? Jews made every country rich, but Israel is poor compared to oil fiefdoms.
Dan, Thanks for writing in. Not sure where you are writing from, or if you even listened to the entire report, but his point is that Israel IS, in fact, an R&D lab for many overseas firms. There are plenty of other references to this point elsewhere. "Poor" by what standpoint, when you're comparing a struggling nation to fiefdoms raking in trillions in oil revenues?
