Peak Google: Search advertising market is $50 billion. Google has most of that. Total advertising market is over $500 billion. Most of that is brand advertising. Google can't capture this market through search. In-stream, native advertising is the future. Very low down in the funnel. Biggest opportunity, top of the funnel, generating brand affinity
True money is not direct response, but brand advertising. Techies only focus on the direct response. - Todd Hoff
Or is the nature of brands changing? Not a pushed top down process where the guy with the most money wins. Brands now built more bottom up from social commentary and reactions. The quality of experience is what matters. - Todd Hoff
Google will not shrink. It will keep the search market. But the total online market is growing to $100-$200 billion and google is not in a good place to capture new forms of advertising. - Todd Hoff
You figured it out -- the top-down model is kaput. - Sean McBride
This was from a podcast in the link above. - Todd Hoff
there's this dual (or triple?) celebrity/band/consumer thing going on, like what Taylor Swift has been doing lately. Your brand gets associated with a lifestyle through being "naturally" embedded in entertainment, social etc. - Laura Norvig

Graphing the data is easy; gathering, organizing and marking up the data is difficult. - Sean McBride
See what you can find on if non Jewish billionaires give money to the Lobby and Zios orgs or finance campaigns where they declare their funding is predicated on Israel support like Adelson. I've never heard of any. - American
Off the top of my head: Rupert Murdoch and Donald Trump. Look into their contributions to FIDF (Friends of the IDF), for instance. Murdoch's entire media empire has been devoted to propagandizing the cause of Likud Zionism. - Sean McBride
Another way to frame these questions: how many billionaires worldwide are promoting ethnic or religious nationalist causes? Which ethnic or religious nationalist causes? Which billionaires? How many Jewish billionaires worldwide have been promoting Jewish ethnic and religious nationalism? Which billionaires? At what level of spending? - Sean McBride

Are your fingers doing De Niro's "I'm watching you" at me?. lol. You know, Sean, I keep finding myself in this social dilemma here on ff: every time I wanna post an article, I get into a quandary about whether to post it on mwff or gftg - I like both pages and their people but I understand the two camps are ka§*!%^!!*ked at each other. I try and spread out my posts as evenly as I can but it feels very, very AW-K-WARD pretty much every time. "Can't we all just get-a-long?" - Taxi

"Ya'alon claims bad blood between him and the Obama administration was over, but learns they leaked that he was denied an audience with senior officials, upon returning to Israel." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"The White House refused to give Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon an audience with Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and National Security Advisor Susan Rice during his state visit to the United States this week, senior American officials confirmed Friday. The reason for the cold shoulder was a number of statements Ya'alon made six months ago, in which he criticized the Obama administration and Kerry in particular." - Sean McBride
"Speaking in the same conference Ya'alon said that if the administration continues to show weakness on the international stage, American national security would suffer a great blow. “If you sit and wait at home, the terrorism will come again,” he said. “Even if you hunker down, it will come. This is a war of civilizations. If your image is feebleness, it doesn’t pay in the world. Nobody... more... - Sean McBride
That sure sounds like a *threat*. - Sean McBride
Yea it does..... the ideal cure for Israel would be an entrapment--- let Israel proceed with a false flag terrorist attack on the US and then expose them right before they carry it off. Of course there would have be actual Americans in the NSA and CIA and no Israeli agents within those agencies to be able to do that. - American
good they stuffed him. *Imagine if John McCain were president or Romney. But screw them anyway- Israel 'officials' embarrass the US gov't with an announcement of housing settlements right after white house leaders leave Israel. - Chu_
Likud militants in the Israeli government, and their network of assets in the United States, will now engage in massive retaliation, much of it covert, against the Obama administration. - Sean McBride
The Israel lobby will pull all the strings at its disposal to damage Democrats in the upcoming election. It would use a Republican takeover of the Senate to attack the Obama administration relentlessly on policies affecting Israel. - Sean McBride
The Israel lobby would use a Republican-controlled Congress to block any agreement between the United States (the Obama administration) and Iran over nuclear technology. - Sean McBride
Sean McBride
"The blunt-talking Moshe Ya'alon says that Syria, Iraq and Libya have all been shattered by fighting in recent years and that the future map of the Middle East will look very different."
This has been the Israeli game plan along -- to shatter and acquire domination over all its neighbors -- and it has used American military, financial and political power to achieve its objectives. - Sean McBride
Whenever you hear John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Hillary Clinton, Samantha Power, Susan Rice and others clamoring for more American military aggression in the Middle East, you know what is driving them -- Likud Zionism and Greater Israelism. - Sean McBride
Google Oded Yinon and Clean Break for the full background. - Sean McBride
Zionists have sought to shatter American and European cultures in precisely the same way they have shattered Arab and Muslim cultures in the Mideast -- and they have largely succeeded. Divide and conquer. Encourage fragmentation and disintegration. Disrupt and destroy established ruling elites. Play off every weakened faction against all the others. Practice the dark arts of cultural and social engineering. - Sean McBride
The famous theologian NT Wright is one of the few writers who take a dim view of the current wave against "supersessionism".
In his 2005 book on Paul, he says that people get so worked up over it, that just mentioning it "evokes the chimneys of Auschwitz". He continued on in this vein. When I read it last year on Google Books, the book was readable. I pulled the book up now though and it's apparently the only Preview book in GOOGLE BOOKS that is totally upside down and unreadable. - WJones
Now tell me, how does that happen? - WJones
That's, indeed. Sabotage? - weareone
1. [Google; google books upside down pages] 2. [Wikipedia; Google Books] - Sean McBride
"Many of the books are scanned using the Elphel 323 camera at a rate of 1,000 pages per hour. The scanning process is subject to errors. For example, some pages are unreadable, or upside down, or in the wrong order. Book information such as authors, publishers, dates and so on, may be incorrect or abbreviated incoherently." - Sean McBride
Yes, I saw that. And it makes sense. But then how come I could read it last year? Most likely I am just forgetting that it was upside down. Whatever. - WJones
Probably you misremembered. - Sean McBride

The World's 2,325 Billionaires Have These 14 Traits In Common:
Hey Sean, I've put this up cuz you're so fond of lists. - Taxi
Pretty much every time I see a list now I think of Sean McBride :-) - Taxi
I'd like to affectionately nickname Sean: 'Dr. Listtt'. - Taxi
Actually, interesting article -- I didn't realize that Europe has more billionaires -- 775 -- than any other region of the world. (But the US has more billionaires than any other nation -- 571.) - Sean McBride
Lists that are machine-readable, machine-interoperable and machine-inferencable are useful for a wide variety of reasons -- especially as knowledge discovery tools. - Sean McBride
I wasn't a fan of the list, but a useful tool. just need to learn how to compare them more effectively. - Chu_
Lists are a tool for bringing order and clarity to facts -- to better understand them -- to uncover patterns and make connections in complex data. And they are the backbone of contemporary artificial intelligence, data mining and Semantic Web technologies. - Sean McBride
Mondoweiss has always appealed to me because Phil Weiss's mind is oriented around precise collections of concrete facts -- the same for Glenn Greenwald. Windy discursive opinionating interests me not so much -- once I get the point, I move on. Opinions and arguments are datapoints. - Sean McBride
"Opinions and arguments are datapoints." Interesting way to view things-not natural to me, but I'm open to learning. - weareone
phil does a lot of opinion, greenwald is more data driven. - Chu_
Without all the data that Phil wraps his opinions around, Mondoweiss would not be very interesting. Opinions are a penny a dozen. Review his posts -- they are all anchored around valuable collections of facts that are usually suppressed, censored or ignored by the mainstream media. - Sean McBride
good part is that he is an inside man in many ways. - Chu_
It is helpful to think of lists as sets in traditional set theory -- with complex set intersections one can uncover and understand the operations of barely visible or invisible social networks -- to see the real lay of the land. - Sean McBride
That tableau software seems like a very useful graphing tool/ much - Chu_ from Android
On opinions and arguments as datapoints: once an opinion or argument has been clearly enunciated, there is no need to see it over and over again -- you've got it. What is of interest are new facts which pertain to opinions and arguments -- which tend to reinforce or undermine them. - Sean McBride
Also of interest: the number of times that an opinion or argument is expressed in the world or in certain communications channels over time -- but that boils down to a single number or trendline. - Sean McBride
For instance, the intersection of three sets: - Sean McBride
c; PNAC member+JINSA member+Washington Post writer; * // where {c; *category1+*category2+*category3; *instance} and "+" defines a boolean AND relation -- all three conditions must be true. - Sean McBride
To be able to know such things immediately, on demand, is useful. - Sean McBride
I think Phil keeps his article writing factual, he's an excellent writer, l but I don't think his 'opinions are always based on the facts---he sees what he wants to see quite often, what he wishes to believe. - American
Phil has had a much greater impact on the conversation on these issues globally than any of his detractors. He produces superior content on a regular basis -- that is incredibly difficult to do. If you doubt this, try to set up a blog or website that draws the same level of traffic and engagement. - Sean McBride
The best description of Phil's problem, the one that prevents him from 'really seeing' the Jewish problem was the one by NorthOfFortyNine June 23, 2011, 1:38 pmI ---->""At the risk of offending, I sometimes feel like Phil is saying, as though referencing a saturday morning cartoon: “Jews have special powers. Zionists use these special powers for evil. Me? I want to use them for good! To the Batmobile!” - American
Hey I just read that too - put a smile on my face. So whoever posted the gilad interview on mw, thanks - great read. - Taxi
That was indeed a great line by Northof49 - Danaa
Danaa, if you like quote about Phil you will love this one. Chris Moore posted on his site when featuring the MW-Slater vr the commenters big fight on Just War-------->'' Even though I totally disagree with Weiss' left-wing politics (which even he doesn't seem to take very seriously, anyway) guys lake Weiss make me believe there are at least a handful of semi-patriotic, America-first... more... - American
The on- going $64,000 question on what Phil really is/believes. Does it matter?---not really - American
Phil lives in inner turmoil - he knows deep down that he's a jew living a WASP life. but he's also pleasantly numbed by his golden goy life. Phil is torn between individuality and group/tribe/gang. He really prefers the 'individuality' thang (because he's comfortably numb) but there's this constantly recurring weird group/tribe/gang thing that keeps talon-clawing at his naval for... more... - Taxi
So where do I collect my $64,000 from, American? - Taxi
Hummm....we will have to crowd fund the 64K - American
Maybe Phil secretly likes WASP culture, wants to be like them. And why he writes about it a love -hate way.. But to renounce Jewish culture would be too big a treason against his upbringing and heritage.And he couldnt ever really be a WASP, only a convert, like gentile converts to Judaism. - American
I'd be gobsmacked if "we" could raise more than 64 cents lol! Just kidding kiddo. - Taxi
The American Dream was not conceptualized by jews or blacks or asians but by WASPS. Would you call this a correct statement of fact? - Taxi
For the most part, but I wouldnt say WASP (as in elites) I would say mainly European Anglo Saxons since that was the majority and what all the 'Founders' were-----one clue to that is the fact that the 'law' and legal system in the colonies was based on "Black's Law', brought over from England, where it was the basis of what we call 'Common Law'---its still the basis of the US legal system. - American
Everyone wants the American Dream, buddy. It's as far as it goes - the penultimate. Jews here are no different - they want the American Dream too. There is no such thing as the jewish dream that everyone wants. - Taxi
It's past midnight here in the sleepy hills of the Levant - g'night. - Taxi
so why did Hostage quit? last post August 21, 2014 at 7:10 pm - Chu_
My guess? he got bored. The comment section has become too anemic for him, and that includes the zio-bots. He must have spent a lot of time putting together his analytic/legal comments, but the feed-back for quite a while now has been less than stellar. he may just have tired of repeating his points, and no doubt, he does not care much for endless debates about whether or not he is a... more... - Danaa
"neither is getting into lengthy debates with Christian theological points". I don't know that theology and Christianity was really something that is focused on at MW, other than M.Ellis' writings (against it). - WJones
Hostage I noticed has some familiarity with talmudic teachings, but he never presented himself as an expert on Jewish thought or practice. His interests were strictly the legality and machinations of Israell, its zionist friends elsewhere and the intricacies of international law. - Danaa
Another theory: he is desolate over the current state of affairs. I used to tell him that legalities are all well and good but that the antagonist, Israel, has no regard for any of those. It takes what it wants and discards the rest. perhaps Hostage came to see the sad, awful implications this has for Palestinians. may be he came to see also why BDS is really the only way to fight back.... more... - Danaa
Yes, sadly having all the legal ramifications at hand, doesn't matter to state sponsored Israeli thuggery. And while I read his comments and logical legal conclusions, his posts weren't very conversational. Sean suggested he make a wiki page of all his findings, but he said he was happy to leave the record on MW. - Chu_
Too bad MW became such a static blog. Taxi and others were reflecting on how it was so great, but the good commenters are mostly gone. - Chu_
Some possibilities for Hostage's departure: 1. boredom 2. disgust 3. despair 4. health issues - Sean McBride
When you stop to think about it, there are many more interesting ways to spend one's time than arguing about Israel's problems -- which unfortunately have become America's problems. At the center of this vortex there is really no there there -- just endless narcissistic and neurotic recursion. - Sean McBride
there are a lot more interesting things to focus on. Science, technology, arts. you name it and it's more interesting that thieving occupation and land grabs descibed as 'ensuring survival' of Jews. But Israel has become America's problem like it or not. And by ignoring it, it seems to only become a larger problem. They hold a backward ideology that pretends to be something so... more... - Chu_

Then there's the bogus argument that we are correcting history and all the bad things that happened to Jews, and the USA is the hand that will save Jews. If that be the case, why aren't we working toward helping the American Indians for a new state, because surely we've screwed them and only helped Jews throughout the last century. - Chu_

Connecticut arm of million-strong church votes to shun occupation profiteers...
"The United Church of Christ in the US state of Connecticut has declared its support for the Palestinian-led campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel. A BDS resolution approved by delegates to the annual gathering of the church’s Connecticut conference follows similar moves by its followers in New York, Northern California and in the Central Pacific and Central Atlantic regions. As a result, church bodies have been urged to divest their holdings in companies profiting from Israeli occupation in Palestine, including Caterpillar, Motorola, Hewlett-Packard, G4S and Veolia." - weareone
"The United Church of Christ has around one million members across the US. Activists in the United Church of Christ Palestine Israel Network (UCCPIN) are scheduled to propose measures to support BDS at the church’s general synod in Cleveland, Ohio, in June next year." - weareone
"If the UCC divests from contractors with the Israeli occupation, it will be the fourth national church body in the United States to do so, following divestments by the Quaker Friends Fiduciary Corporation in 2012, the Mennonite Central Committee in 2013 and the Presbyterian Church (USA) in June this year." Also in June, a board on pension and health benefits with the United Methodist Church divested its shares in G4S, a British-Danish contractor with Israel’s prisons and occupation forces."--end quote - weareone
good news. The soil against occupation and land grabs is firming up in USA. No more zio weeds to pollute the soil. about time. - Chu_
Good! One of the biggest benefits I see to the various churches actions is that it spreads out to all their members---changes their views on Israel to what Israel really is also makes them perk up and wise up when they hear our politicans spouting their support for Israel in the face of what they now know. - American
And when one takes a moral stand, it may pressure the others to respond. The influence and power of churches to shift the dynamic against Israel is, imo, huge. - weareone
And it's surprising for all the talk that northerners make about being progressives, they support an apartheid Jonestown that robs the Arabs of their property. But let's continue to elect People like Chuck Shumer to office. He's a real honest guy. - Chu_
I think that Shumer may also hold dual Israeli- American citizenship. Here's a small list of other Israeli citizens who hold key US government positions. Sean, I was wondering if you would be able to compile a more complete list that includes Congress? After a short search, I didn't come up with much that seemed complete. - weareone
wao. I know that Amb. Ron Dermer and others have to renounce their Israeli citizenship. But here's a facebook post I found [List of Politicians with Israeli Dual Citizenship] - Chu_
sean, how do you mark this up? i.e. Mark Weinberger, dual citizen, Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development for Public Affairs - Chu_
Thanks, Chu-I saw that list, but I was wondering if there's a way to compile an updated list. I think that one's from 2011, before the 2012 congressional elections, so it might not have all current congressional members. I'm thinking that a list would be very helpful to circulate before the upcoming elections. - weareone
wao. it should be accessible public information that our media should provide it citizens. but we all know how that goes. - Chu_
you're right---it should be public information....and we do know how that goes. I'll keep digging, when I have a moment. - weareone

not too many surprises.... but I was expecting an even longer list. It seems that many with dual citizenship have either been defeated or chosen not to run again----a good sign hopefully. We'll see if they pop up again somewhere else..... - weareone
I don't get this wearone. Are you saying Boxer is a Dual citizen?or Feingold? that's just highly unlikely. I can believe ity about Schumer because I believe Schumer has no known boundaries to his supiness and love of power. His principles are probably limited to accepting that earth is round. Well, as long as it benefits him. Hover the years he has even assumed the look of corruptness. It's like a reverse Dorian Grey. - Danaa
Danaa, as I mentioned, this list is unverified, so these are possible dual citizens. Regarding Boxer, she doesn't seem unlikely at all to me given her history of support for Israel.

The Israeli government is using its citizens scattered all over the world to try to manipulate international politics on behalf of Israeli interests -- that much is obvious. They comprise a single political network that transcends all conventional national boundaries. - Sean McBride
And recall that Stanley Fisher, vice chair of the U.S. Federal Reserve System, is a dual citizen. - Chu_

Most mainstream websites are now so gummed up with commercial crap that they are unusable.
Or what happens when we don't want to pay for content... - Todd Hoff
There has to be a better way to pay for content. - Sean McBride
One option: 1 click to pay for a day, week, month or year of ad-free content on a given website. - Sean McBride
What a joy it is to watch commercial-free films and TV series on Netflix. - Sean McBride
Some have figured out how to make libraries pay, and still have some commercial sales crap on the sides. - Joe
None of those approaches work in real life Sean. - Todd Hoff
Having the option to pay for an ad-free version of websites might work -- both modes of revenue-generation could operate together. Think of smartphone apps. - Sean McBride
It doesn't work. People don't pay. And since you are removing your best advertising targets your advertising revenue also goes down. This is why nobody does this. It canabalizes ad revenue for a pitiable for pay revenue stream. Using both together you get less. Who makes money selling content via smartphone apps Sean? You have to think this through as business person. Not just user who doesn't like ads in their content. - Todd Hoff
Are the Internet and the Web revolutionizing the way that many of us process advertising? I know that commercial messages have absolutely no impact on my mind -- I automatically filter them out. Most of my purchases are based on using Google to quickly turn up objective comparative evaluations of products and services -- an activity that would have been impossible for most people to... more... - Sean McBride rankings of best-selling and top-rated products, combined with user reviews, are much more useful than advertising for getting a handle on products of particular types and making buying decisions. - Sean McBride
Many smartphone apps are offering paid ad-free versions. I make it a point never to use ad-only smartphone apps. This is also why I use Netflix much more than traditional cable TV these days -- commercials kill the narrative flow and mood of great films and TV series. - Sean McBride
For content, who is making money off of paid ad-free versions? Netflix isn't the same deal at all. - Todd Hoff
How is Netflix a different model? -- you pay them a monthly fee to get rid of commercial messages. Many people would probably like to pay a reasonable fee to Facebook to filter out all the advertising there. I know many people who buy the ad-free versions of smartphone apps -- it's a small price to pay to get a clean and uncluttered interface. - Sean McBride
In what way is Netflix like your normal blog trying to put up content that people might want to consume? In what way is it like twitter or facebook?

I am not saying that users of websites should be forced to pay for ad-free content -- merely that they should be offered that option. Some percentage of users will exercise it, just as some users choose to pay for ad-free versions of smartphone apps. - Sean McBride

Then you are cutting of the air supply of the content generators so they will no longer be able to generate content. But who doesn't want something for nothing? - Todd Hoff
Content providers should be paid for their work -- but I am not going to consume their content if they embed it in a jungle of junk. - Sean McBride
But you did consume it. With adblocker or some other way to circumvent the ads. The consistent and ethical action would to not to consume the content and boycott the site. Cake and eat it too. - Todd Hoff
In principle, you are right. In reality, we are still living in the wild, wild west with regard to sorting out these technologies, conventions and rules. - Sean McBride
In reality the power of rationalization wins. People will take content because they can while the content providers go uncompensated. It's really quite simple. - Todd Hoff
I don't see it as simple at all. These arrangements are the product of social negotiations over time -- and the world is still in a state of negotiation regarding intellectual property on the Internet -- with quite a few bugs still to be worked out. - Sean McBride
Don't make it sound so high minded. Something of value was made available to you for which you actively avoided compensation. It's simple. - Todd Hoff

Miliband’s Embrace of Jewish Heritage Complicates Criticism of Israel -
"Criticism of Mr. Miliband’s stance came from the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Jewish Leadership Council, which said his position ignored “the ideology of Hamas, the psychology of Hamas, the actions of Hamas and thus the reality faced by Israel.” Stephen Pollard, editor of The Jewish Chronicle, described his readers’ reaction to Mr. Miliband’s stance as overwhelmingly negative." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

"While it is not exactly news that there’s a disparity between what is being discussed within Israel and what is being said about Israel around the world, the gap appears to have reached new lengths. While the rest of the world talks about the implications of the Gazan war, the possibility of a European recognition of a Palestinian state and the fate of Israel-U.S. relations, Israelis seem to have other things on their minds. Such as pudding." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

"This in itself is not news: Israel has been isolationist ever since David Ben-Gurion shrugged off criticism of Israel by the UN by snorting “Um-shmum” – Um being the Hebrew abbreviation for the United Nations.

American Pro-Israel German-language Jewish magazine launches in Berlin
More shit stirring. - American
'' BERLIN – Seated in a café in the Hotel Kempinski in the bustling downtown shopping area of Berlin, Dr. Rafael Korenzecher explains why he launched Jüdische Rundschau, a new German- Jewish monthly magazine. “We have a message and we are not a mainstream news outlet,” he says. Now, he stresses he “has the opportunity to reach the German public” and convey that “appeasement is a false policy.” - American
'' Jüdische Rundschau, loosely translated as “The Jewish Review,” devotes many of its articles to Israel, contemporary anti-Semitism and Jewish culture . The monthly, which Korenzecher launched in July, has a sister Russian- language publication. - American
'' Asked why he decided to manage the paper, Heni tells The Jerusalem Post it was a “real chance once a month to bring together international and national voices in 40 pages covering topics such as Israel, anti-Semitism and the Iranian threat, which would otherwise not be heard or read in Germany.” .Heni says Jüdische Rundschau has a clear position that “stands behind Israel and has no problem criticizing the German government.” - American
''Karl Pfeifer, a top expert on Austrian anti-Semitism, wrote a highly detailed article on Austrian politicians’ downplaying of Jew-hatred and the failure of major political parties to confront anti-Semitism.

Cornering the market: 'have the greatest market share in a particular industry without having a monopoly.' - This is employed by Jewish interests time and time again. i made a case about this with NBA bastketball. more than 50% of the ownership of the NBA is Jewish.

Evidence supports officer’s account of shooting in Ferguson - The Washington Post -
"Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown fought for control of the officer’s gun, and Wilson fatally shot the unarmed teenager after he moved toward the officer as they faced off in the street, according to interviews, news accounts and the full report of the St. Louis County autopsy of Brown’s body." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events of Aug. 9, according to several people familiar with the investigation who spoke with The Washington Post." - Sean McBride
"Some of the physical evidence — including blood spatter analysis, shell casings and ballistics tests — also supports Wilson’s account of the shooting, The Post’s sources said, which cast Brown as an aggressor who threatened the officer’s life. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are prohibited from publicly discussing the case." - Sean McBride
"The St. Louis Post-Dispatch late Tuesday night published Brown’s official county autopsy report, an analysis of which also suggests the 18-year-old may not have had his hands raised when he was fatally shot, as has been the contention of protesters who have demanded Wilson’s arrest." - Sean McBride

Israel’s Most Important Source of Capital: California...
"But if it’s a matter of stopping the flow of capital, the ports are a relatively small conduit of trade between California and Israel. For over 20 years California’s technology industry has been channeling billions of dollars to finance the growth of Israeli tech firms. In that time, tech has become a key sector for Israel’s economy. The flow of capital between California and Israel is digital, transmitted as currency and intellectual property. And this flow of capital occurs mostly through the decisions of a small number private equity firms and perhaps as few as a dozen large corporations. These flows of capital supporting Israel’s economy are less susceptible to social movement pressure." - weareone
