This paper was written within the framework of the Zichron Ya'akov initiative, whose purpose is to establish an action-plan that will fulfill Israel's socio-economic potential. The initiative's goal is not to create another profound academic paper but to create practical and focused strategies that will later be adopted by the Israeli government.
In this paper we examine which of the OECD's recommendations for Israel are in stages of planning or implementation, and whether the budgetary cost that the state is willing to incur will lead it to the required target, as defined in the OECD report. We therefore present the OECD recommendations for Israel and elaborate on government actions aimed at implementing the suggested policies. Afterwards we present an examination implementation costs and the resulting effects on the economy.
