Jerusalem Post:Isreal Inside (A look at Israeli business and technology)

Romney's foot in mouth comment's about Israeli culture being better for business than Palestinian culture got us thinking about culture leading to success in business.

Here is a story from Jerusalem Post (and also covered on PBS) about a new film that is supportive of Israel's business and technical success. The filmmakers is clear about his goal: to provide public relations for Israel.

Jerusalem Post is Here.

Here is a link to the "Inside Israel" website.

Israel enjoys many advantages other countries do not have an active and well financed support network, a favorable treatment by trading partners, and financial support from the US government. One must look at Israel's success with some skepticism. However, the article (and film) make some important points about success. It is also interesting to see inside Israeli business and technology centers.

The film credits the success of Israeli business men and innovators with high value Israelis place on "family, education, volunteerism and diversity." Had to go for the direct quote's since there a have been several racial incidents against immigrants and the Haridim are not know for supporting diversity.
