Israeli standards, of course, are a bit strange too. After all, what is a middle-class Israeli? In my own (admittedly limited) experience, a middle-class Israeli family has a car or two, owns its own home, has at least one home computer, high-speed internet, cable TV, lots of other creature comforts, nice clothes, plenty to eat... and a perennial bank overdraft.

How does our whole economy manage to stay afloat, with everyone surviving on overdrafts? Nobody knows - it's still a very new country.

Why the name?
