    Estimated groth rate too high.
    Estimate a real groth of 1.8%
    Also mind that there is not always groth.
    Groth leads to inflation as groth is limited by nature. There is no exponential groth that lasts.
    Prepare for recession and inflation. And rupture of the israeli real estate bubble!
