has taught since 1983 at the Department of Economics, Ben Gurion
University. His areas of research include macroeconomics,
monetary theory, the Israeli labor market and the history of
economic thought. A major focus in recent years has been the
political economy of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Stanford, Penn, The New School University and SOAS. He was a
Senior Economist in the Research Department of the Bank of
Israel from 1989 to 1997, and Chair of the Department of

Since 2002 Arnon has been the coordinator of the Israeli team in
the Aix Group, where experts from the Palestinian Authority,
Israel and the international community discuss various economic
aspects of the current situation, as well as possibilities open
when a permanent peace agreement is reached. A report entitled

In 1998-2004 he was a founder and co-chair of an Israeli NGO
