I am an Associate Professor for Political Economy and International Studies at the School of Government and Society at the Academic College of Tel Aviv Yaffo. My main areas of expertise are Comparative Political Economy and International Political Economy. One of my two research areas is Israel’s economic history and its changing growth models. Particularly, I am interested in the impact of Israel’s geopolitical circumstances on its growth models. Recently I was awarded a highly competitive 3-year research grant from the Israel Science Foundation. This research project, Israel Growth Strategy in the Post-Fordist Era: Ideology, Security and Economy (October 2019-September 2022), investigates how the perception of security threats by Israeli decisionmakers affected economic policy choices and determined Israel’s path to the neoliberal era. My recent book on the topic is Israel Path to Neoliberalism: State, Continuity, Change (Routledge 2018)
My second research topic is financial globalization and the evolution of the global monetary and financial system. Within this research topic, I have published articles about the European Central Bank and its impact on the European Union, on the consolidation of the Eurodollar market in the 1970s, and on consolidation of the law inflation monetary regime in the 1990s.
I am also manage the Forum of Money, Banking, and Credit, sponsored by the Israeli Association for Economic History and he is a member of the executive board of the Israeli Association for International Studies (IAIS). I am heading the Economic and Employment Staff of the project “Experts of the Crisis.”
Besides teaching and research, I am active in the public discourse. I publish OpEd occasionally in The Marker and Globes on economic and international issues.
