How Did Israel Become “Start-Up Nation”?

This article from the Freakonomics website is an interview between Dwyer Gunn and Saul Singer, co-author of  “Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle,”, in which the author describes the culture behind Israel’s economic success and model entrepreneurialism. Singer explains the impact of some unique aspects of Israeli society on its disproportionate role in the global tech industry, including the (in)famous Israeli “chutzpah,” mandatory military service, the ability to transform challenges into assets, and the small country’s attitude towards immigrants.
