Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel's Economic Miracle, par Dan Senor et Sol Singer

Un analyse fascinante et experte sur la montée météorique d'Israël dans l'économie globalisée - qui comprend des avis judicieux pour un monde qui subit encore les effets de la crise économique mondiale.

Start-Up Nation s'attache à répondre à la question à un trillion de dollars: Comment se fait-il qu'Israël — un pays de 7,1 millions d'habitants, entouré d'ennemis, constamment dans une situation de guerre, dépouvu de resources naturelles — crée plus de start-ups que des nations plus grandes et qui ne sont pas en guerre comme le Canada, le Japon, la Chine, l'Inde et le Royaume-Uni?
