    if that meretz-loving young man in green shirt had his way, not only the tycoons would hang heads dows but also everyone who is richer, more successful than himself; which is apparently a big chunk of the population. this is what history teaches us. with regard to the old 'new deal' 1. 'It must say in a determined way that education, health and welfare are not commercial products but fundamental rights. It must guarantee that the state provide every Israeli with a life of dignity that will not be privatized but strengthened'. health and welfare are already here, they are guaranteed to everyone regardless of his/her contribution. oft times its also heavily abused by parasites. education is also fairly inexpensive here compared to its real cost. 2. 'The second dimension is to require the free market to be free. No longer a rule of monopolies, duopolies and triopolies. No longer cartels ...' excellent idea but you will find ofer eini on the other side of the barricade. if you can take care of the histadrut- i will vote for you, ari shavit, as our future pm regardless of you flawed political views. 3. '..state must intervene and guarantee the construction of about a quarter million new homes..' good idea and the money comes from... '..It must tax the owners of hundreds of thousands of investment homes to encourage them to sell or rent them out cheaply.; don't count on this- the extra cost will be passed over to the 'consumers'. just one more comment. this government has been doing a lot to make the market more competitive and de-centralize the economy. look at the communications market, gas revenues, now diary imports. i don't see many of your haaretz collegues acknowledging this.
