Trajtenberg rejects being tagged as ‘neoliberal’

Likud member and former finance minister Yuval Steinitz calls the social-economic plan presented by Prof. Manuel Tajtenberg on behalf of the Zionist Camp “a check that will bounce.”

Trajtenberg says that his critics “made me a neoliberal… I grew up on the Kibbutz.”

The former head of the Trajtenberg Committee on the cost of living is also criticized from within his party. Shelly Yachimovich says Trajtenberg “stole his plan from Amir Peretz,” who is now running on the Zionist Camp’s list as a member of Tzipi Livni’s Hatnua party.
