Yechimovich: PM Won't Deal with Concentration of Wealth


Chairwoman Shelly Yechimovich of the Labor Party reacted skeptically, Sunday, to the cabinet's approval of a report by a committee on the lowering the concentration of wealth.

She said, "On the eve of the approaching elections, Prime Minister Netanyahu was reminded to deal with the difficult issue of the concentration [of wealth], which prevents competition, perpetuates the control [of the economy by] a few capitalists and generates inequality.  The timing clearly indicates that Netanyahu does not intend to really take care of the concentration [of wealth]."
