By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
US News and World Report has published its yearly list of the most powerful nations of the world.
Israel was named number 8 in the most powerful category. Number one was the United States, followed by Russia, China, UK, Germany, France, Japan and then Israel.
Israel was listed as #19 in the movers and shakers category and #25 in entrepreneurship.
Israel's standing is impressive by any standard. Israel, a country with about 8 million people, is competitive in power with countries like China with a billion and half people and the United States with 325 million.
