Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday attributed high market prices to an excess in regulations, according to Army Radio.

"The state of Israel is suffering from over-regulation," the prime minister said at a meeting with heads of the Coordination Bureau of Economic Organizations, which represents the leading industrial and economic organizations in the country. "Not only that but we have reached a situation where regulators are even competing with other regulators."
