Leadership Ideology and Socioeconomic Inequality: The Case of Israeli Kibbutzim

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter, the author seeks to answer the question, “Why do some affluent societies adopt socioeconomic inequality and some do not?" and suggests governmental/leadership ideology as the major factor. This chapter presents secondary analysis of data from research conducted on members (about 700) from 32 kibbutzim, both “traditional” and “differential”. Transformed kibbutzim are called “differential” and the ones which stay communal - “traditional”.
