Wicked Problems

The subject of wicked problems is discussed in Rethinking Wicked Problems.

The following wicked problems in Israel contribute a lot of heat to the political discourse:

  • Place of religion in Israel (Israel as a state of Jews vs. Israel as a Jewish state).
  • Civil rights of Israeli Arabs vs. security of Jews by their being majority. By extension, dealing with the Palestinian refugee problem.
  • How best to help the hungry and poor in Israel.
  • Traffic accidents - human factors vs. infrastructure factors.
  • Balance of the right to make money by one’s efforts with the governance-distorting political clout caused by being very rich.

On the other hand, the problem of optimal management of the health system and health insurance does not appear to be a wicked problem.
