Leaders from five of the biggest political parties sparred over the economy Thursday during a conference at the Dan Panorama Hotel in Tel Aviv hosted by the Chamber of Commerce.

Presenting their outlook for how best to manage Israel’s economy, Labor’s Shelly Yacimovich, Yesh Atid’s Yair Lapid, Yisrael Beytenu’s Avigdor Liberman, Tzipi Livni and the Likud’s Yuval Steinitz took to the stage to make their case to the country’s business elite.

The room may have been full of political stars, but most of the attention was lavished upon the middle class, small and medium businesses, lower taxes and dysfunction in the political system.
