Prof. Eytan Sheshinski told Globes Sunday that, last week, he received a request to head a committee to review measures to help the middle class, but refused, citing his schedule.

Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz's approach to Sheshinski to head the committee was reportedly behind Finance Ministry Director-General Haim Shani's sudden resignation Sunday.Sheshinski chaired a previous committee that recommended raising the government's take on oil and gas revenues, which was enacted.
