Israel turns 60 years old this week. Antitrust has become more important as Israel has moved towards to market system and away from its socialist origins. As Israel celebrates its 60th birthday, one piece of news has gone unreported in nearly all news stories about the birthday-- Israel is in the process of joining the OECD, which also means membership in the OECD Competition Policy Committee, or as Angel Gurría, OECD Secretary-General stated a few months ago, "The benefits of this accession process are manifold. It is a triple-win partnership: Israel wins, the OECD wins and the world economy will win too."
