Prof. Michel Strawczynski: “Growth is not trickling down to the poor. In order to deal with poverty in Israel, we must set long-term social targets.” Interview on Reshet Bet, 06.12.2013

Prof. Michel Strawczynski, in an interview on the “This Morning” program on Reshet Bet following the OECD report on the state of the economy in Israel, said that although Israeli governments have tried to deal with poverty in Israel for a long time, they have never pursued a long-term strategy with defined goals. According to him, only such a strategy will help eradicate poverty and will obligate the governments to deal with the issue thoroughly.
