How Did ISRAEL Become The Country of START-UPS? – VisualPolitik EN

In the last few decades, Israel has become
one of the most important technological powers in the world. Amazingly, with a little more than 8 million
inhabitants, this country has more than 4,000 tech companies. Cisco, Paypal, Google, Facebook, Apple and
Intel are only some of the many companies that develop new products in Israel. But how did such a small and turbulent country
become one of the world´s innovation leaders? Well that’s what we’re going to be looking
at in today’s video.Israel is one of the most controversial countries and, in truth,
it’s pretty difficult to talk about it without having to refer to wars, religion and various
political conflicts. However, in this video we’re going to try
and shed some light on a very different side of this country. Because, dear viewer, in the last few decades
Israel has become one of the world’s greatest technological powers, and this is something
pretty suprising. As we mentioned Israel has over 4,000 tech
based companies, and 80 of the 500 largest companies in the world have subsidiaries here
orientated towards research and innovation. In fact, Tel Aviv is, right after Silicon
Valley, is the most important technological centre in the world. And although it may seem impossible given
its size, Israel is the country in the world with the third most companies listed on the
Nasdaq. Only being behind the US and China. Israel has more companies listed on this market
than Spain, Italy, France, Germany, and the Netherlands… PUT TOGETHER! So how about some like specific examples? Well, here they are: At the time of publication
most of the next iPhone’s hardware is being developed in Israel. Further, many of Google’s innovations are
made in Israel; and Intel, the world´s leader in microchips, owes most of its success to
the innovations of its Israeli subsidiary, which, by the way, has 11,000 workers, and
is one of the largest companies in the whole country. And, well, even Microsoft has been considered
a semi-Israeli company! Paypal, IBM, Cisco, Amazon, Facebook… these
are the companies that we use every day, whose technology relies a lot on R&D that is done
in Israel. This sector makes up to more than 12% of its
national GDP and half of its exports. Alright, so now you are probably wondering:
how did they achieve such success? Now cultural factors are usually considered,
but here today we want to focus on three political keys that were essential in this process. YOZMA The 1980s in Israel are remembered as a terrible
decade, especially from the economic perspective. Back then the country was going through a
tough crisis: inflation between 1980 and 1985 exceeded 100% every year. Deficit and public debt were almost an unbearable
financial burden on the economy, and in general, people felt handcuffed due to excessive state
intervention To a large extent, Israel was very dependent
on help coming from different parts of the world. And even though the situation started to stabilize
by the end of the 80s, right at that time there was a massive arrival of Jewish people
from different parts of the Soviet Union. In very little time, 800,000 new people arrived
in the country. And don’t forget to add perspective to this
number, in relative terms, it would be as if 70 million immigrants arrived to the US. And now the question for Israel was clear:
how could they generate jobs for so many people in such a depressed economy? Israel´s only option was to reinvent itself. At first, the government tried to encourage
the newcomers to create companies with subsidies that promoted the work of entrepreneurs. But they soon realized that this method didn´t
result in prosperous companies… Immigrants had no experience in management,
they lacked commercial knowledge, and they rarely got any finance. After all, who would invest their money in
a turbulent country like Israel? And this is when the government realized that
the key was to bet on attracting international venture capital, that is, money used for new
ideas and new companies. In order to do so they came up with the YOZMA
program. Thanks to Yozma, the government created 10
funds of venture capital and allocated $100 million dollars to be used under the these
conditions: Each fund capable of levying 12 million private
investors would receive 8 million in public investment. In exchange, the government would keep 40%
of the property, but in case the investment was successful, the investors could get these
shares from the government just by giving the government’s money back with a small
interest rate. So, friends, if things worked well, the profits
would be mainly for the investors, and if things didn’t work so well the government
would share in the losses. Now, this may seem unfair, but the truth is
that the public investment was relatively small and, also, the government expected to
get the losses back from the taxes generated by these new companies and all the new jobs. The ideas was to fire things up and then continue
to reap the ongoing benefits. Since then, most public programs in Israel
have followed this same system, and the truth is the results couldn’t have been any better. International money started to arrive, there
was funding for almost any idea, and in the first eight years alone the number of funds
rose from 20 to 513! As a result, Israel has today one of the best
ecosystems for entrepreneurial capital in the world and, according to the last OECD
data, the investment available for new companies exceeds $150 dollars per person, per year. To make a comparison, in Spain, the equivalent
figure is only $3.5 dollars, a solid 40 times less! The key in this process is that venture capital
doesn’t just bring money, with this money also comes experience and contacts. Immigration It could be said that israel is the country
which has bet on immigration the most: One out of every three citizens has been born
abroad and 9 out of 10 are either immigrants, or children or the grandchildren of immigrants. This is an impressive migratory number that
explains the growth of its population from 800,000 inhabitants in 1948 to more than 8
million today. So, in little more than 60 years, the population
has multiplied by 10. Israel is, in fact, a political and historical
exception, because their founding documents, so to speak: its constitution, expresses the
need to have an open immigration policy. Let’s have a look at what the law of return
(still in force) of 1950 says: “Every Jew has the right to come to this
country as an Oleh.” (LAW OF RETURN, ARTICLE 1)
And don’t get this wrong, this isn’t a minor issue. Immigration has contributed to the economic
miracle as much as any other factor. No matter what populist politicians say, whose
aim is often just to get votes, the wealthiest nations are usually the ones with more immigrants. Among other reasons, it is usually because
immigrants have higher rates of entrepreneurship than the local population, and also because
immigrants help boost international trade, especially with their countries of origin. By the way, if you are interested about immigration,
I will link over to some videos about this at the end of the video! The quality of Israeli education is almost
a national hallmark. In 1918, 30 years before the founding of the
state of israel, Jewish settlers founded the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Israel today has one of the highest rates
of people with college degrees, and the country has had a lot of success with fusion company/universities. Finance for Israeli universities relies mainly
on projects financed by private companies, so there are reasons for universities to collaborate
with them. Further, they have achieved the best rate
of business creation in the OECD: “Knowledge transfer is essential; this is
taking the university and professional world closer together” Well, we have seen the main keys to success,
but there are other influential factors. For example, there is the Jewish “chutzpah”,
a tendency to question everything. Something that is key in Jewish culture. The military service is also a surprising
and important thing since it helps social mobilization forcing young people from different
social classes to interact. And, hey, compulsory military service isn’t
exactly great… but I have to admit it does have some positive effects. Now, we could also discuss, for example, Netanyahu´s
reforms of 2003, which were essential to Israel’s success, but I think it’s better to leave
that for a future video. The thing is, thanks to all of what we’ve
discussed today, since the 80s, Israel has doubled its population, multiplied the number
of jobs by four, and grown by an annual average rate of 4%. Today, its GDP per capita is higher than other
countries like Spain or Italy. So, what do you think? Will israel consolidate itself as the leading
technological power in the world? Could its model be repeated in other countries? Let us know what you think in the comments
below. And, hey, if you liked this video, hit that

  1. Thanks we have very good relationship with Israel and hope our both government buildings strong relationship on common ground. Love from India…

  2. A big misconception is that Israel is a european country.
    More 60% of jews in Israel came from Arab countries and merge with european jews.
    Actually Iraqi jews May be the most educated and successful.
    If Iraq maintained ties with its jews and Israel and went back to its pluralistic tradition, rejecting secrerianism (brought to Iraq by the Palestinians in the 1930s) Iraq willbe a paradise.

  3. Dont kill me but the Palestinians are actually lucky their neighbors are some of the smartest people in the world ///FUK-IT Matter fact I'll say it . If the Jews were not in charge the Palestinians would kill each other and destroy the land FACT!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Your videos are getting addictive. I need to get unhooked this new information fix you guys are dishing 🤔😛😮🙄😁

  5. I think the key point here has been deliberately not discussed in detail which is the key source of financing has been the aids secured through lobbying in United States. So it is no miracle or exceptional economic policy that helped them get their but merely the free flow of aid that ensured their phenomenal growth and market dominance. Give that kind of money to any third world country and you will be surprised with the results.

  6. 3rd world immigration is shit, but the Jewish immigration which has its ideological connection is not "just immigration" without a specific ideological basis and a common culture/heritage.

  7. Beutiful …we are Fathers holy land .i love so much .long live ISRAEL ❤ GOD BLESS ISRAEL 🇮🇱😇🙏.

  8. This is pretty much a lie that Israeli try to manipulate the world with – they made some inventions but mostly posing ever since. You really think that a religious country can keep acomploshing without education?
    Well I lived with them and these animals are very limited. Pretty sure they manipulate the charts because it's something that they are actually good at, lying conniving and stealing

  9. Israel is a clear and present danger to the planet.

    How Israel totally dominates cyber security and has planted high level corporate spys all over the world via their Talpiot Program run under Israeli military intelligence.

    1. How Russia China & Israel work together for the One Belt One Road Project.
    2. How Israel steals US technology and passes on to China, Russia and Iran.
    3. How this is impacting on the Middle East.
    4. I ring Homeland Security to make a complaint about Jewish Zionist spying in America – it a good one hour watch.

    Israel has kill switched the entire planets critical infrastructure. From banking to hospitals to power grids to the Internet of Things and Military Industrial Complex of the United States. Israel is a cyber technology juggernaut.

    Detailing how Roger Stones worked with A Wall Street sex worker to compromise targets of interest for the Israeli and Russian state intelligence apparatus.

    The Oded Yinon plan was first postulated in the 1970's as a way to "re-shape the Middle East" for the benefit of Israel.
    What it was really about is long term Soviet era strategic planning to "re-shape" the Middle East for the benefit of The Belt & Road economic development under the CFR (Communism For Rothschild) and other Round Table Groups? The East India Trading Company writ large.
    911 was meant to happen in 1992-3. The Israeli company lost the security contrat in 1988. And 911 was over ten years behind schedule along with the Belt & Road Initiative. All praise to the New York Port Authority employee who spotted war criminal Avraham Shalom Bendor and Zvi Malkin.
    Israel should be called "Soviet Israel".

    The B.I.R.D, the B.I.R.D, the B.I.R.D is the word.
    The Bi-national Industrial Research & Development foundation.
    The greatest security penetration…ever…is so funny you have to laugh. Its the only way to cope.
    This is a catstrophe for the United States and it is in full view.
    Russia got Israel to set up the Bi-national Science Foundation (B.S.F) in 1973 under Nixon and Henry Kissinger.
    The B.I.R.D was set up in 1978, around the same time they set up The Talpiot Program.
    And then they have the B.A.R.D – Bi-national Agricultural Research & Development foundation.
    Here it is…no one will talk about it. when you see Bi Bi bragging about how clever Israeli scientists are what he's really saying is his Russian immigrant scientists are very good at stealing US technology.

  10. I praise Israel for its contributions to technology. The other countries in the Middle East focus way too much on war and terrorism to bother. Instead of learning a thing or two from Israel like they should, they constantly bully their small Jewish neighbour.

  11. I have CANCER,, I am willing to accept a cure from only the following types… NUTS! People in the really matter space don't give a shit if your form any country.. any faith… any race.. any sex… the problem is the media bs selling masses that there is some truth that has ZERO to do with the real world.

  12. Israel focuses on mass patenting using loop holes in US intellectual property laws to secure a steady money flow

  13. I mean, with this political mambo jambo out their on Huawei not getting Google products, I believe Honor should be a Spinoff start up in Israel that has nothing to do with Huawei, in order to develop smartphones and let the US be up to date in 5G technology as in a way the US has no problem with Israel!

  19. It's great that Israel is doing so well> Does this mean the United States can stop sending foreign aid? Since the 1970's, Israel has received more foreign aid per person than anywhere else on Earth. Israel receives more aid than all the countries of South America, the Caribbean, and Sub-Saharan Africa combined.

  20. Each and every Prime Minister of Israel comes either directly from Eastern Europe or is removed by one generation therefrom. These Prime Ministers are not leading their “people” in their native land, but rather are part of a European colonial system implanted in the Middle East by Zionists. They are all originally from the dispanded Khazar Khaganate.

  21. Military service is always bad and immigration is always good? That´s lefty propaganda and indoctrination for soy boys and thuna kids!

  22. Here in KIIT University Odisha India once we had our C programming lab shared with 40 foreign students,of them about 10 Israeli students they were perfect,it took us 40-50 minutes to understand union of arrays in C programming,the Israeli students did it in 13 to 16 minutes.They are so so Intelligent although we were all in first year of college
    Love Israel from India

  23. To be quite honest, Africa should embrace the Israel model to get itself from the poverty trap. Africa is one of the richest continent in the world but it’s not using its potential at all. Someone somewhere keeps telling Africans that you’re poor, surprisingly they believe and they lag behind. I wish I was given a chance to change this slumber that has haunted us for generations. Shalom

  24. Because half the country's population are Ashkenazi Jews; their group average IQ is about 15 points higher than Northern/Central Europeans. Yes, libtards, IQ is real.

  25. Jews are the reason that the United States stands heads & shoulders above the other countries. It should be no shock that Israel is technologically the #1 in the world.
