The monthslong Cabinet formation delay and Lebanon's worsening economic situation pushed caretaker Economy Minister Raed Khoury to publish a macroeconomic report on the country drafted by consulting firm McKinsey, he told The Daily Star Monday. Khoury previously said he would wait until a Cabinet was formed and the new ministers could review the 1,200-page study, which includes damning assessments of a host of sectors as well as a 15-year economic vision.The report now requires Cabinet's endorsement, whenever it is formed.It's not a Bible".The caretaker minister went on to hit out at reports that claimed the study's economic vision had not presented any new ideas, and he described an article published by Al-Akhbar over the weekend as a "political attack with no scientific basis".
