    Description

    The book, Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle, written by Dan Senor and Saul Singer, is about Israel’s phenomenal growth, i.e., how such a small nation surrounded by hostile neighbors was able to reach a high level of prosperity.

    Summary Of The Book

    Hardly 60-years-old with a population of just 7.1 million, Israel has made such tremendous economic growth that have got even bigger developed nations wondering. In Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle, the authors examine what made this achievement possible for a small nation, despite being surrounded by enemies and at the brink of war.

    Israel does not have many natural resources, but the number of Israeli start-up companies that the country produces outnumber those by much larger nations like Canada, China, India, UK, Korea, and Japan - which are far more stable and peaceful nations. This is considered as an economic miracle by many. The country’s culture, which is driven by adverse circumstances, is examined by the authors with the help of knowledgeable foreign policy experts.

    The Israeli culture has a flattened hierarchy, which promotes informality. All these start-ups are supported by the policies of the government, which believes that innovation is the key. Many countries with diverse economies are trying to emulate the “Israel effect”.

    Senor and Singer note that there are lessons to be learned by foreign entrepreneurs from Israel. With countries like USA struggling to rebuild their own ailing economies, the authors stress that this is the right time to look for ideas from this resilient nation. While dismissing any views like 'unitary Jewishness' or personal talents as the reason for their success, the authors attribute most of Israel’s economic achievements to mandatory military service and immigration.

    The authors find that compulsory military service for the youth has helped them to grow themselves as successful entrepreneurs with various skills. Israeli soldiers have minimum of guidance from top, their rules are liberal, hierarchy is minimum, and are encouraged to take independent decisions. Israeli immigrants from all over the world have managed to start from scratch and re-build their lives. The authors conclude that both Israel and the rest of the world have much to learn from each other.

    Policy makers and journalists from many countries find this book a useful guide for promoting entrepreneurship in their countries and have recommended the same to their governments.

    Must-read if interested in economy, business, startups

    After a recommendation from a friend, bought this book the same day and was so engrossed by it that I finished reading it in 2 days.

    It's an amazing book about the interplay between government policy, neighbouring countries, schools and colleges, the army, leaders, teamwork and profitable patriotism, startup culture and most of all, entrepreneurism both in terms of a government as well as private businesses.

    A highly recommended read.

    Recommended reading for budding Innovation Economists

    As an innovation economist, I was able to appreciate the effort that went into writing this book. At first, I was worried that the book would go on and on about the Israeli military and how conscription was responsible for their brazen attitude towards life. And for the first half of the book, that is sort of how the story goes. (Infact, with all the mention of elite military units, I was disappointed that they hadn't mentioned the Mossad) Fortunately, the authors did a good job of comparing ...

    Discipline and Patriotism

    I read this book after being in Israel for 15 days. I can say that it does not describe the way Israelis work fully. If they are so few and so all pervasive it is all due to Discipline and Patriotism. One must read this book to see what is the difference between us and them. This book is like pilgrimage for Entrepreneurs.

    Excellent Book

    A lot has been researched and written about Israel's history. This book gives a contemporary view of Israel. The news and media portray Israel as a struggling state, constantly fighting with the surrounding militant countries to maintain its existence. However, there is much more to Israel than just the armed forces - the inherent tact Jews possess to do business. This book portrays how Israel is impacting the modern business sectors like defence, internet security and information technology ...
