I am a political economist who studies the ideational and institutional foundations of economic liberalization and neoliberalism in Israel and other advanced economies. My work mainly focuses on the governmental aspects of the neoliberal political-economic regime, namely its architecture of economic decision-making and the ideas that stand behind this architecture. Generally, I show in my research that depoliticization and the institutionalization of technocrats’ policymaking power are crucial components of the neoliberal political-economic regime, and that these institutional changes were informed by highly influential set of economic theories which I termed ‘neoliberal ideas of government’ (NIGs).

While the common academic and popular analysis of neoliberalism tends to focus on the influence of pro-market ideology on changes in governments’ economic interventions, I demonstrate in my studies that no less crucial and even more resilient were the governmental changes that accompanied economic liberalization and the NIGs that stood behind them.
