Yair Lapid's Strongman Doesn't Get Economics

High-tech entrepreneur Hillel Kobrinsky will be the power behind Yair Lapid's finance minister throne. He may have been a key player in Yesh Atid's campaign, but with his little knowledge of economics, is he the right man for this job?

Yesh Atid secretary general Hillel Kobrinsky is likely to become the "dominant force in the Finance Ministry" due to his "strong influence" on party chairman and prospective Finance Minister Yair Lapid, according to a Yesh Atid source.
