    This article doesn't give me information about the reasons for the high cost of living. Perhaps I'm missing something. I understand the desire of people to emigrate if taxes and cost of living are too high and wages too low (see France for failure of that same type of policy), but you may be too late. Maybe moving to the U.S. would help (and I, for one, would welcome Israeli immigrants), but we have much the same problems of crony capitalism, statist economic policy and too much regulation. But we're behind Europe in falling off the cliff so maybe Israelis could enjoy years of less punishing govt and maybe things will improve in the U.S. In the meantime, Israelis need to vote against politicians who promise more public expenditure will create jobs (it won't) and you need to get rid of politicians who use legislation to enrich themselves and their cronies.
