    Default Israel's hugely successful smart economy-lessons for Ireland?

    See Facets of the Israeli Economy- The High-Tech Secto for a summary of Israel's hi-tech economy. The key factors in its success are the very high proportion of technical and scientific graduates,civilian spinoffs from indigeneous military tech (probably assisted by the US military),foreign direct investment,government partnerships with venture capital and the traditional entrepreneurial culture of Jews.

    How can Ireland emulate Israel's success? First,Ireland could produce more high tech graduates by improving the quality of maths and science education in secondary schools. This requires recruitment of specialist maths teachers,possibly through retraining unemployed engineers,through incentivising existing maths teachers to improve their advanced maths teaching abilities,plus the provision of advanced science labs in a high proportion of schools.

    Second,given that the government's venture capital funding has attracted few proposals from international venture capital funds,the IDA with its experience of attracting multinationals or a consultancy with marketing skills in vencap needs to get involved in the marketing effort.

    Third,the leading universities should all offer specialist courses in entrepreneurship with an emphasis on export oriented hi-tech and technical services startups.

    Fourth,universities need to collaborate with industry on R & D,although this should not crowd out the universities' function as providers of basic research.

    Surely their are more realistic models for us to follow than the Israeli one . Its a pretty unique set of circumstances out there , few of which apply here .

    In order to emulate the Israeli model, we would need to have a new homeland established for the Irish Diaspora within an existing nation, with the support of the US and UK.

    Then we would have to be in an almost continual state of war with all of our neighbouring countries while trying to suppress the original inhabitants of our new homeland.

    Of course our military needs would be huge and would need money from our US sponsors. This massive investment from the US could lead to some spin off industries in military and security technologies.

    To be honest, I think we're better off with the Gobeen waffle merchants and their smart arse economy. Who knows what spin off technologies might be developed from bailing out dead banks, like Anglo?

    You also forgot the trillions in reparations for lost property from axis powers (an idea that funnily Israel doesn't extend to all that stolen Palestinian property)

    Thread just another zionist troll fest trying to divert attention away from Israels murderous incompetence and increasing isolation

    The leading edge,US military supported military high tech and the DNA of Jewish entrepreneurialism are unique.

    Expertise in the following:
    -returning development projects in the middle of nowhere to pasture
    -preparation of case studies for B schools on the hubristic folly of bonus driven bankers,
    on methods of conning governments into allowing financial bubbles and bailing out bankrupt banks and on conning auditors about worthless loans.

    LOL we would also have to annex lands from neighbouring countries in order to emulate Israel. Salinate their water supply; aw heck why not bomb the poor büggers with banned weapons to boot-in for a penny, in for a pound, what what?

    Hey, don't forget the ability to cow an entire poplulation so they will take any sh1te you want to throw their way and still pay yourself more than anyone else in Europe, while at the same time bailing out your political sponsors. Amazing stuff!

    I'm sure other govenments would pay serious cash to learn how to do this.

    Perhaps Israel would trade us a nuke?

    Well these economic statistics do not look too healthy for your idolised nation here from their respected brothers the CIA

    https://www.cia.gov/library/publicat...k/geos/is.html

    We are in bad enough shape without our GNP another 40% from where are after already falling another 30%.

    Anyhow even it was a great economy, I would sooner emulate Mugabe's Zimbabwe than be inspired by them bunch of cold blood murdering Zionazi's.

    So quit the red herrings and diversions here, we are not going to let the scum away with one iota anymore. OK?
