In this compelling lecture, Professor Manuel Trajtenberg discussed Israel's economy, society and culture, surveying Israel's past, present and future. Over 100 Chicago-area and Northwestern community members listened attentively as Trajtenberg described the ups and downs the State of Israel has encountered since its birth as a nation in 1948 addressing topics ranging from the challenges of having such a diverse population to benefits of providing physical spaces for early childhood education for all. One of Israel's leading economists, Trajtenberg drew upon his experience in politics and academia for his portrayal of "Israel at 70."
