L'économie israélienne se porte très bien - grise mine chez les boycotteurs

Des chiffres qui vont donner des vapeurs à nos illustres boycotteurs et des boycotteuses. Up up we go.

Le Fonds monétaire international a revu ses prévisions de croissance en Israël pour 2011 à la hausse.  Au lieu de  3.8% elle sera de 4.8%.

Sur le front du chômage l'évolution est également très encourageante: 6.7% en 2010, 5.8% en 2011 et 5.6% en 2012.

Quant au taux d'inflation il est estimé à 3.4% cette année et se stabilisera à 1.6% en 2012.

Quand Agrexco fait faillite, on accuse les boycotteurs d'en être responsables de la disparition de ce "fleuron historique". Faudrait savoir...

L'économie israélienne ne se résume pas à Agrexco. De toute façon, la campagne de boycott n'a rien à voir avec des difficultés d'Agrexco. Aux dernières nouvelles Agrexco aurait trouvé un repreneur - hélas les nouvelles ne sont pas bonnes pour les travailleurs:
"Agrexco liquidator Adv. Shlomo Nass will likely recommend to the Tel Aviv District Court to accept the offer by flower grower Gideon Bickel for the business and assets of the agricultural produce exporter as a going concern. Bickel Flowers' bid is similar to the bid by rival Ofer Gilboa, the controlling shareholder of Cargo Air Lines Ltd. (CAL), but Agrexco's employees support Bickel and apparently tipped the scales in his favor. [...]
Bickel Flowers Ltd. was founded in 1976. It owns a large farm and packing plant at Moshav Beit Hanan, and has an office in the Netherlands. The company closed its Belgian flower market branch in 2004 to concentrate on real estate. Gideon Bickel, once the Agrexco rebel, exporting flowers and other produce independently of it, is closing the circle by trying to take it over.
The statement to court says, "Deciding weight should be given to the identity of the bidder, his ability to revive the company from the circumstances to which it has fallen to become a successful company in the future, as well as to the structure of the offer. For this purpose, the temporary liquidators have consulted with representatives of the banks and the employees, and after obtaining their positions and thorough reviewing the figures, the temporary liquidators believe that it is proper to declare Bickel's offer as the winning offer."
Agrexco's workers committee announced that it prefers Bickel's offer. Workers committee chairman Shaul Tzivoni told "Globes", "The two bids are similar, around NIS 40 million altogether. We think that the new employer will commit to negotiations on a collective agreement on the basis of agreed principles and will protect the workers rights."
Bickel told "Globes", "Agrexco was a monopoly, and I wanted to export Gypsophila (Baby Breath) flowers, on which I wrote my Masters thesis at university, but the state would not let me. They told me, 'You can only export through Agrexco'. I petitioned the High Court of Justice against the minister of agriculture, Agrexco, and the Flowers Marketing Board, and I won on freedom of occupation grounds. Since then, I've expanded to export fresh produce, herbs, fruits, and vegetables."
Bickel has also made a number of large real estate deals, including the purchase of the Hadarim Mall in Netanya.
There is no good end for Agrexco's employees. The company has 332 employees in Israel and 180 in other countries, and the new owners estimate that only 50-70 will remain.
