This story appears in the Mar. 26 “Billionaires” edition of Forbes magazine.

"In 2006 Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway paid $4 billion in cash for 80% of Wertheimer’s precision metalworking tool company, ISCAR. To date it remains one of Berkshire’s five largest non-insurance-company holdings, and while its vital statistics are jealously guarded by the investment firm, in his latest letter to shareholders Buffett described ISCAR as a company that 'continues to amaze.'

Zvi Eckstein: Global Economic and Social Hot Spots

"The key to collaboration and economic development for Middle Eastern countries is stability, peace and competition policies…. The main drawback of most Middle Eastern countries — and that includes the West Bank and Gaza, and maybe even Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt — is really economic stability, political stability and economic competitiveness, and the opening up of the countries to imports and exports and getting competitive advantages growing as has been the [case] in most Far Eastern countries, which came from very low per capita incomes to grow."
