Event Description:

Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity at Baruch:  The Case of Israel’s Natural Gas Deposits with Speaker Eytan Sheshinski

Thu, Dec 6, 2012 at 1pm



About the Program

The recent discovery of vast natural gas deposits off of Israel’s Mediterranean coast presented a rare opportunity for Israeli leaders to establish such a policy. In a nation with both a strong socialist tradition and a dynamic market-driven economy, the Prime Minister established a committee headed by economics professor Eytan Sheshinski with the task of recommending a regime that would best allow for the development of the resources by private industry in a way that would benefit the entire country.

In 2011, the Israeli parliament adopted the Sheshinski Committee’s recommendations.  Professor Sheshinski will talk about how he overcame the many seemingly irreconcilable interests his committee had to take into account in reaching its conclusions and will speak more generally about the interplay between the government, the people and the private sector in allocating the benefits from a nation’s natural wealth.
