When I lived in Israel in the mid-1970s, Israel underwent a severe price inflation because the government's economic policies followed the protesters' demands. Israel's currency was in such a free fall there were booming currency black markets in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Doing that won't break the budget and is likely to increase government revenues.
