Alright let me give you a definition of the public sector:
(Original post by The_Great_One)
The country can't rely on the public sector because you can't have more people taking out of the economy than you have putting in. Private companies put in public takes out. The only people that think otherwise are socialists and trade union members aka communists who have their own agendas. You can't increase jobs in the public sector and not have as many people working in the private sector why do you think no other country in the world has done it. Also the people in this country don't want that as theirs a few parties who advocate it and we always vote opposite such as Tory, Bnp, ukip or labour who all cut spending.
The public sector, sometimes referred to as the state sector or the government sector, is a part of the state that deals with either the production, ownership, sale, provision, delivery and allocation of goods and services by and for the government or its citizens, whether national, regional or local/municipal. This includes state schools, hospitals, the civil service, the police and the court systems.
Now that THAT is out of the way, how exactly does the public sector take out of the economy? They are employed by government bodies, collecting salaries. This leads to consumer spending which will directly lead to economic growth. These people also pay TAXES, the main form of government revenue. You cut the public sector, you're cutting jobs. You cut jobs, you cut government revenue. Not only that, but then those you made unemployed are forced into the welfare system, taking more money from the government. You're missing the point. The public sector is just as important as the private sector, but unless you plan on privatising schools, the NHS, and the police, you can't get rid of the public sector and is just as important. Do your research and quit talking nonsense.
