Individual differences and the Repayment of High- and Low- Consequences Debt: Replication and extension
We replicate the results of our previous study about the effect of intelligence and financial resources on the repayment on High- and Low- Consequence Debts (abbreviated as HCD and LCD, respectively), and extend the scope of the individual differences that are examined to include personality characteristics, and particularly the big-five personality dimensions.
“'Up and out”: the social impact of Israel's policy response to the housing crisis
The paper examines the consequences of drastic top-down policy interventions aimed at resolving a severe housing price crisis in Israel. The government's main effort was to increase the housing supply, using two main tools: "umbrella agreements" and "buyer's price", which were often implemented together. What impact have these (drastic) policy measures had on housing prices and location?

Public Information and Sequential Learning in a Bilateral Market
The research studies the effects of improved public information on equilibrium welfare and price dispersion, providing sufficient conditions for negative and positive effects. Public information affects welfare by reducing excessive (though rational) pessimism induced by sequential learning. Reduced pessimism results in fewer agents withdrawing from the market prematurely (compared with the full information benchmark), which increases own ex-post utility in expectation but may also cause a congestion externality.

The Effect of Political Belief on Covid-19 Virus Transmission, Vaccine Resistance, And Response to National Closure: Evidence from Israel
We employ comprehensive Israeli data to study how political belief affects COVID-19 virus risk, vaccine uptake, and response to closure policy. We identify households that hold divergent political beliefs based on votes in Israel’s 2020 national election. Results indicate substantial variation in outcomes across belief clusters.

Viewshed Effects and House Prices: Estimating A Spatial Hedonic Model
