Sharon vows he won't run an 'election economy'

In a speech before the Israel Business Conference, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon vowed he would not succumb to pressure to run an "election economy" ahead of the March 28 general elections. "There will not be election economics and there will not be election promises," he said before a business conference in Tel Aviv. "What the Israeli economy needs is patience, responsibility and thoughtful actions taken after planning and checking the impacts on the short term and long term - not slogans and not magic solutions."
