Why is Israel so expensive?

Veteran financial journalist Guy Rolnik discusses with Yonit and Jonathan why the cost of living in Israel has become so high

As the new Israeli coalition passes its budget, Yonit and Jonathan are joined by Guy Rolnik, Founder of TheMarker, Israel’s leading business publication and Professor at University of Chicago Booth School of Business. We ask how Israel has become one of the most expensive places to buy a house (or go to a restaurant?), why does it continue to attract so many foreign investments, and why isn’t the economy on top of the political agenda for Israelis?

Also – Yonit shares some interesting finds from her moving house experience, and Jonathan gives us a sneak peek at his upcoming book.

About Unholy from Keshet: Yonit Levi of Channel 12 Israel and Jonathan Freedland of The Guardian are two Jews on the news. Each week on the podcast, Levi in Tel Aviv and Freedland in London give their take on developments in politics and life in Israel, the US, the UK and around the world. Since they’re Jews, you can expect to hear far more than two opinions at any given time.
