what peace can achieve.

Economics and Society" at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute and
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.

Arnon has been a visiting scholar and teacher at Berkeley,
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
Economics at BGU from 1999 to 2001. He was a member of the
"Committee on economic affairs concerning the negotiations with
the Palestinians" (the Ben-Shahar Committee) in 1993, a
consultant to the World Bank in 1996, and a member of the

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

on unemployment in Israel..
