If anyone has a chance to clean up this mess with skyrocketing housing prices it's Netanyahu. Any socialist candidate would be introducing government grants for home buyers right now, which would only make prices shoot up even higher in this environment of severe housing shortage. Granted, it took country-wide demonstrations to motivate Netanyahu, but now that he is properly motivated, he is doing all the right things, insuring much more housing will be constructed in the future. And that's the only way to bring prices down.
