University / Career Development free of charge for all Israelis completing full national service
Written by Naphtali Goldman
The plan is to offer all people who successfully complete national service free higher education
Currently Israel has one of the highest levels of higher education per capita in the world
To achieve global business leadership we need our youth to be educated
The idea is to educate to the highest level our talented youth and make them industrialists and business leaders of the future
Universities will offer free degree courses in computer science, medicine, cyber technology, biotechnology, engineering, law, business management, economics, robotics, etc
After successful completion of the selected degree, the State of Israel will assist our young adults in opening a business that will trade internationally
This will make Israel a global powerhouse and will generate tremendous economic success for the State of Israel
Assistance to purchase housing for all Israelis who complete full national service (21 – 35 year olds)
After a student completes full national service and completes the study paths he/she chose for free, in the event of his marriage to his partner who also completed a full national service, they will be offered an apartment in the Central Israel area to purchase
In Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Bnei Barak, Rishon etc…
The purchase price of the apartment will be offered at a significant discount
The deposit on the mortgage for the apartment will be no more than ten percent
The young couple will live comfortably in this apartment and raise their family there
This property must not be sold or rented out for 15 years. These apartments are especially designed for young couples to live in a brand new apartment in central Israel
There are two reasons why the young couple may not sell or rent out the property for the specified period of time
To ensure that there is no negative financial impact on the current real estate market –
The second reason is to ensure that as a state we maintain our most important asset, our children within Israel.
We will assist our young adults and by doing so we will make Israel the most attractive place to work and live with a discounted mortgage and cheap purchase prices for new apartments. The overall idea is to ensure that we retain our talented young people in Israel
Our talented young people will help make the State of Israel a world leader amongst nations.
How we will finance our proposals and Ideas
How exactly will we pay for the proposals we recommend and how will create a vibrant and prosperous economy
It is important to emphasize that the economy is in good shape
We have no intention of dramatically changing anything in the economy
The Likud Party has prepared a budget for 2020 of NIS 479 billion, which we would adopt and adjust
The extra funds we need to fund our programs to help those in need and give free university and subsidised housing will be raised as follows
The army holds about 39% of all Israeli land
Much of these lands are found in areas where land is of great value
Examples of areas are city centres properties within Tel Aviv, Bnei Barak and Jerusalem
We suggest moving these military bases to more remote locations outside of these high value areas to areas closer to the suburbs.
We will sell or lease the land to major real estate developers from the US, Israel and Europe
Hundreds of thousands of apartments will be built on this land
It will raise funds and encourage huge external and internal investments that will have a significant positive impact on the entire Israeli economy
In addition, it will significantly increase housing for our youth to encourage them to stay and build their families in Israel.
We will create a scheme that will enable young people who have completed national service to receive preferential prices and purchase rights for these apartments. These properties will be in prime locations ……. Click here for more information
Planning Limitations – The IDF limits the use of 40% of Israel’s land (this is above and beyond the land that it owns). The IDF limits planning for civilian needs
We would ditto the above scheme with parts of this land allowing for huge external and internal investment that will have a significant positive impact on the entire Israeli economy.
Income from the Leviatan Gas project.
As you can see, we have put forward several realistic ideas on how to raise the funds we need to help those in need, finance university study for free and finance subsidized housing for young Israelis.
It is important to note that the fact that we would be creating a more educated and more capable workforce through free university and giving assistance to these youngsters in opening up internationally trading businesses will in itself lead to a huge increase in GDP for the Israeli society in the future.
All in all, the overall price of our proposals is simply moving army bases from one place to another and developing the valuable inner city land.
Long-term economic plan
The overall plan
We intend to create free universities for Israeli citizens who have completed national service. These will specialize in the sciences, computers, programming, biotechnology, medicine, etc. Graduates will be assisted in buying apartments at preferential rates to enable them to establish their families in Israel. This generation of Israelis will be business leaders and entrepreneurs and create a vibrant economy over time in Israel
