A meeting between Kadima chairman Tzipi Livni, Labor chairman Ehud Barak and seven senior economists ended with no significant decisions on Sunday night. During the meeting, the government's expenditure ceiling and the current financial crisis were discussed. The Labor party previously demanded that the addition to the 2009 budget be increased from 1.7 percent to 2.5%, but no decision was reached on the subject. One of the economists supported the budget increase, three opposed carrying out the measure presently, and three economists opposed the proposed budgetary increase altogether.
