(p.326) Chapter 10 Economic Cost of the Occupation to Israel
The Impacts of Lasting Occupation

Shir Hever

Oxford University Press

The chapter describes the economic costs of the occupation to Israeli society. It argues that, in monetary terms, funding the occupation has been the most expensive project undertaken by Israel since 1967. The financial outlay to maintain the security forces in the occupied territories and carry out the activities that are implied by occupation, together with the Jewish settlement, is taking an increasing toll on the State of Israel in a way that may undermine economic growth in the near future. A major reason for the paralysis in Israeli institutions is that "security" issues always override the need for social and economic change. Also there are those who profit from the current state of affairs. The general Israeli public prefers not to inform itself about the minutiae of the occupation.
