The Challenge of COVID 19 to the Israeli EconomyAug. 11, 2020
What will be the impact of financial markets and the currency? Is there something "unique" in Israel's recession this year as compared to the US or Europe?; What are the main sectors suffering from losses due to the crisis? What do we think about the policy responses by the authorities during the crisis?
Given the 'cold war' between the US and China, how are Israeli companies adjusting their business strategies for the coming years? Is it true that the high-tech and startups sectors are not very much affected by the current crisis? Is there plenty of liquidity for new projects, as it was the case in January this year, before the crisis, or are investors more worried about their liquidity and thus they may want to wait and see what happens with this crisis before they deploy their cash?
