The Times of Israel's Senior Analyst Haviv Rettig Gur talks political transparency and budget this week on the podcast.
At least a third of Israel’s cabinet ministers, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz, have failed to produce a declaration of their personal assets, more than three months after the legal deadline. Gur explains why this matters -- and why no one will do anything about it.
Then, Gur does a deep dive into why Netanyahu isn't keen to pass the 2020 budget, and how tens of thousands of lives are affected. And finally, why are top economy bureaucrats dropping like flies?
