Ramp-up to Annapolis: Some Economics

Judith Apter Klinghofer looks at Israel's economy, and also at the Palestinian one, and decides it's the Palestinians who need peace more than the Israelis (which isn't so surprising); foreign aid is bad for the Palestinians; and living in a state of war doesn't particularly damage the Israeli economy. Not so much counter-intuitive (which it actually isn't) as much as counter-everything-the-pundits-say-all-the-time.
