“Without the Facts, You’re Just Another Person with an Opinion: What the Data Really Tells Us About the City”- Lior Schillat
Do good fences really make good neighbors? Lior Schillat, a more than 25-year veteran of Jerusalem’s policy and business worlds, and previously a member of the planning team for the city’s controversial Security Fence project, could give you an answer—but one based on facts, not emotion. As director general of the Jerusalem Institute for Policy Research, Lior has amassed and analyzed data about almost every aspect of the city, and insists that the numbers never fail to surprise. More important, they can offer new ways of thinking about Jerusalem security, economy, educational system, and more. Join Lior for “Without the Facts, You’re Just Another Person with an Opinion: What the Data Really Tells Us About the City”, a fascinating survey of the current state of the city, its challenges, and the (facts-based) reasons for optimism.
