    Lack of earning opportunities. The government stifles private enterprise, which could give earning power to many, with punitive taxes on income and excessive sales tax on spending. They are killing the golden goose. All over the world Jews open their own businesses and are successful. In Israel, the success is minimal due to the beurocracy.
