From the little I know about the circumstances government deficit spending must be curtailed or public debt will require further currency devaluation with increased inflation. Difficult in a democracy as the citizenry can essentially vote itself (in its minds) an endless supply of borrowed money.
Yeah I agree, they should cut spending and raise taxes. But probably the single biggest thing that can bring prosperity to the country is to disarm hizballah.

This said in my field (IT) new companies are opening every few months. It doesn't seem like the economy is suffering on that level, in fact quite the opposite.
