Book Review Abstract

Robert M. Sauer of Royal Holloway, University of London reviews, "Immigration and Labor Market Mobility in Israel, 1990 to 2009" by Sarit Cohen Goldner, Zvi Eckstein and Yoram Weiss. The Econlit abstract of this book begins: "Explores the gradual process of occupational upgrading of immigrants and the associated rise in their wages, focusing on the experience of Soviet Jews who emigrated to Israel after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989. Discusses the aggregate macroeconomic impact of a large inflow of immigrants; the wage growth of immigrants; immigrants' choice of employment, occupation, and human capital—dynamic stochastic empirical models; job search and loss of skills; the joint choice of residential location and employment by immigrants; and immigrants from the former Soviet Union after twenty years in Israel—evidence and interpretation. Cohen Goldner is Lecturer in the Department of Economics at Bar-Ilan University. Eckstein is Professor of Labor Economics at Tel-Aviv University and Deputy Governor of the Bank of Israel. Weiss is Professor of Economics at Tel-Aviv University."
