The study argues that the Law must be revoked immediately, and provides suggestions for how the budgeted money can be used to actually induce capital investments in Israel, including:

  2. Lowering business tax, so as to attract private equity
  3. Leveraging the money to provide increased credit access to business on Israel’s periphery.
