Agree or disagree: The government should provide most public services
I disagree with the view that the government should provide most public services.
I have two reasons to support my opinion.
First, it’s nearly impossible for the Japanese government to provide current public services in the future because of the lack of government fund. Due to ballooning medical fee for the elderly and fewer number of workforces, it is estimated that tax revenue for the government will decrease in the future. This trend would diminish the quality of service, which would lead to dissatisfaction for citizens.
Second, by outsourcing public services to private companies, the quality and efficiency will increase. Providing public services by private companies means that the companies need to compete with others. So, they need to provide high quality services with low costs. Also, some companies have employees with higher expertise. In addition, according to one research in the United States, outsourcing public services leads to higher efficiency.
From these two reasons, I believe that some part of public services should be run by private corporations. (169 words)
