ICSEP has translated into Hebrew seminal works such as Milton and Rose Friedman’s Free to Choose and James D. Gwartney and Richard L. Stroup’s What Everyone Should Know about Economics and Prosperity.

We are now writing a book about the recent historic reform in the financial market initiated by Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in cooperation with ICSEP and other public bodies. This reform represents the first time that a reform was launched in Israel through the cooperation of a government minister and various voluntary bodies. As such, it is a lesson worth learning by Israelis who doubt that change can be affected under the present political circumstances.

We have received an offer to have a TV series made, based on this book for Israel’s Academic Channel, and we are working on it.

Other programs


  • ICSEP regularly initiates research projects on major issues of the day.

    Some research has also been done in cooperation with other bodies, such as the International Center of Economic Growth (on Political Business Cycles, published in Public Choice, 1992), and the Koret Foundation (on Small Businesses in Israel).

  • ICSEP regularly undertakes original studies in order to prepare detailed reform plans for Israel’s policy-makers.

    In the mid-1980s ICSEP laid the groundwork for the anti-inflationary policies that proved so successful and for the privatized immigrant absorption policies that enabled the successful integration of the vast majority of immigrants from the former Soviet Union.


  • Since 1998, ICSEP has run economics classes at several Israeli high schools in which over 2,000 students have participated.

    The courses teach the students basic economic concepts and theories, as well as how economics affects their daily lives and career prospects.

    The students also go on at least one field trip to an Israeli enterprise.

  • The only Israeli university students who study market economics are those majoring or minoring in Economics, and even they mostly study economic techniques, not philosophy.

    Since 2000, ICSEP has offered a seminar at Tel Aviv, the Hebrew, and Ben-Gurion universities entitled “The Free Market and its Critics” based on Milton and Rose Friedman’s Free to Choose book and films.



  • ICSEP serves as a clearinghouse of economic expertise, knowledge and resources and as a facilitator for groups and organizations such as the Israel Chambers of Commerce, universities, the Israel Supreme Court’s Institute for Judicial Studies, and the Israel Management Institute.
