By the end of the "summer clock" period late this this weekend, about NIS 65 million will have been contributed to the economy, the Federation of Israeli Chambers of Commerce said Tuesday. Over the six months of its implementation, the summer clock saved in production costs - primarily electricity - and helped boost sales and worker productivity, the federation said. The continued economic recovery - despite the summer's war in the North - increased the summer clock's beneficial effect, the federation said, noting that daylight savings also improves the standard of living and gives workers more family and leisure time before dark.
