Economic Trends and their Implications
This chapter examines the economic trends during the first 40 years of the State of Israel and their implications for the economic situation of Arab minority in the state. During this period, the general economic situation of the Arabs changed because of impoverishment and the break in relations with Arab states. The majority Jewish sector dominated key economic positions and the Arab sector remained largely dependent on them. In the 1980s, relative employment rose in the Arab sector, though not as much as that of the Jewish population. This chapter concludes that in the absence of economic growth, the weaker groups among the Arabs and part of the Jewish population suffered.
