Some countries do not want to increase public spending because it will increase production, and it will increase demand for workers. The more hours they put in to work then they will little time to spend for socially. The increase in production increases demand for job which people should be happy because there are more jobs available, unfortunately in some of the countries people wants to have more leisure time. In a way it is good for people to have extra time for social life, because it increases happiness and it also increase healthy life style.
It is known that in some countries people go to work early in the morning and come back from work very late at night. In these countries husband and wife works, they do not have enough time to spend valuable times with their children. During the day when these parents are working, children do not get enough education by their parents. The education given by the parents are more valuable than any education these children can get, because parents teach with love and good intention for their children. Unfortunately it is very hard for one a family to be supported by one income that is why both the parents work so that they have enough income to support the family.
Countries can achieve some of these issues by investing correctly and choosing where to use the public spending to increase the economy but at the same time increase the social life of a country. One of the most important things to do is to do some studies so that they know the problems. One of the usually problem is public transportation. In some countries public transportation is an issue, therefore people take their own car to go to work, which leads to increase in traffic on the road. It can take up to 2 hours to get to work and another 2 hours to come back from work. If the public transportations are good and efficient, people can take the public transportation to save cost and save time. Increasing public transportation is also not as easy as it sounds, because by increasing the public transportation, the government should increasing the safety so that people feel safe to take the public transport to go to work and other places they need to go.
Another investment is sport, there are so many countries that focus on sport but if we look at some other countries they do not invest in sport. The reason why some people do not do sport is lack of finance. Some people wants to start working so that they have income to support their life. People would go to school and right after school they would go to university or get a job. After they complete their university then they get a job right after they complete, most of the time they get a job before they complete their university. A country should make some plans and allow children in school to participate in sport and try to be professional sportsmen while they are in school. It is very hard for some of the students to manage their time with school and sport. The similar plans should be encouraged at the university level also, by the time these young students graduate they will make their choice if they should go on with working or being professional sportsmen.
Another investment that government should focus is on the international investment. The can encourage their companies to invest in other countries to have wider market and more man power. Now a days most of the companies are multinational company but they advantage of multinational company is very big.
Investment in international education is very important investment countries should focus on. By focusing on international education countries are investing their people. Country with educated people are the best foundation a country can have. I always say one smart person can contribute to 5 other people, but imagine a country with millions of smart people, they can push the country to wonderful future.
