Trajtenberg: PM's c'tee must translate demands into action

National Economic Council Professor Manuel Trajtenberg responded on Sunday to his appointment as head of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's new committee, saying that he takes the post with "mixed feelings" – enthusiasm for creating social reform, and suspicion of the risks such work would entail and of the difficulty of meeting the nation's expectations.
"We are witness to a powerful process," he explained, and the burden rests on the committee's ability to translate the demands of the protesters into a plan of action. Trajtenberg quipped that he wishes there were a Rosetta Stone that could help with the process. 
The committee was expected to engage with the social justice protest demands and submit recommendations to ease economic burden to the government within a month.
