'Trajtenberg transcripts reveal politicization'

February 24, 2013 19:54

The Trajtenberg Committee on Socioeconomic Change tailored some of its recommendations to be more politically palatable, according to an investigation by Calcalist, which on Sunday uncovered the official transcripts of the discussions for the first time.

According to the report, based on 184,797 words of transcripts in 763 pages, Manuel Trajtenberg's committee to map out policies to address the 2011 social protests omitted recommendations on issues such as taxes, labor unions and the cost of living from their final report, in part to make the recommendations "easier" for politicians to pass, and in part in response to pressure from government representatives.
