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)

結論:Disagree

①税収減により、政府にとって公共サービスを提供し続けることは困難

②民間企業への委託によって、サービスの質・効率が上がる

 

「水道民営化の是非」について問うトピックも過去に出題されたそうなので、そちらの原稿も後ほど作ってみます。

今回は「公共事業を民間に委託すべき」という立場で文章を書いているので、今度は逆に「水道民営化のデメリット」に注目してみたいと思います。
