The New York businessman wasn’t the casino mogul's first choice for president, but Adelson concludes that he 'will be good for Israel.'08:23 06.05.16 | 0 comments
In recent years, the Likud has dismantled the system of Socialism in Israel, changing it to unrestrained capitalism, American-style. This was started by Netanyahu, when he was PM Sharon's Treasury Minister (2003-2005). I am not attacking Netanyahu for this change; some measure of change in this direction was called for. But Netanyahu acted with no restraint, as a real imitator. Israeli economy is more American like-than European-like. At no point was it considered by the government whether the American life-style is healthier than the European one. It is actually much sicker. What we see now is a response of the general Average Joe, the guy who didn't make it in the high-tech industry, as most people didn't. Let me say that Labor was complicit in the creation of this problem, because they saw that some Capitalism was good, but did not inquire and did not suggest to apply some caution and study the matter first. It is late now, but let us see if anybody starts thinking BIG even at this stage.
