Corinne Sauer was born in Marseille in 1962. She and her husband, Rob, run the Jerusalem Institute for Market Studies (JIMS). The JIMS is one of Israel’s few free-market think tanks devoted exclusively to promoting the ideals of classical liberal economic ideas in a country that has traditionally edged towards socialism. The Sauers have led their organization for eight years, holding monthly meetings with interested university students, inviting academics from around the world to speak at their public lecture series and publishing articles on free market subjects. They made aliya in 1995 and live in Rassco with their five daughters.

How was it growing up in Marseille? It was a port city, fairly cosmopolitan, relaxed. It is in Provence. People go to the beach, they work a little bit. It was 10 percent Jewish and 20% Arabs when I was young. The Jewish community is the second largest in France, mostly composed of Sephardi Jews.
