Abstract

Israel faces an imperative to grow in the 1990s. This year, Israel welcomed 200,000 Russian immigrants (a number that will double in the coming year). How can this small country cope with its surging population? Israel has one big advantage: brainpower. It boasts the world''s highest literacy rate, math skills, and number of scientists and technicians per capita. With market exposure and foreign partners, Israel could do well in world markets. The most important first step, however, is for the government to pursue peace.
