It is hard to imagine today, but in 1948 president Harry S. Truman hesitated if he should recognize the newly formed state of Israel. The main reason - The new state was formed by the Socialist Labor party and its allies, which during the days of the cold war was a concern. Today, no one would think about Israel as a socialist nation. With a large tech sector and an even larger gap between the classes, Israel looks in many ways like a miniature version of the United States. So how did Israel go from a suspected communist sympathiser to one of the most capitalist states in the OECD? This is what we will attempt to understand in this class as we learn how the country of the Kibbutz became the country of Waze.
