How our government is helping out families in poverty is problematic. Simply put, some people who shouldn’t be receiving money from the government are, while those who make less than the Poverty Threshold aren’t. One of the most problematic components of the American Welfare System is the money exhausted isn’t enabling those who receive it, to rise above and stop depending upon it. Not only should our government analyze the current system, but it should apply its findings to the laws of the new welfare system (such as the Human Capital Theory), and not let the rigid 1963 laws dictate current and changing trends. A whole new system should be implemented; with current statistical data inspiring an efficient and much more helpful system that not only helps the rightfully needy, but also creates a system that will allow them to rise above needing welfare.
In modern industrial economics, it is still assumed that to gain economic efficiency from production, the economy would get so at the cost of an increase in income inequality. Greater equality is believed to reduce investment and work incentive, so system of rewards and penalties can encourage effort and channel it into socially productive activity. This reflects the living standards and material wealth of families in the economy, but this pursuit of efficiency necessarily compromises with inequalities and hence, the society faces a tradeoff between equality and efficiency. Not only can more equal distribution of income reduce incentives to work and invest, but the efforts to redistribute through tax system and other transfer programs can themselves be costly. Although, when growth is looked at over the long term, the trade-off between efficiency and equality may not be as prominent and equality may appear to be an important ingredient in promoting and sustaining growth.

The best place to put money is into the hands of the people, who are able to spend it more effectively compared to the government. Throughout this essay, it has been proven that government spending does little to stimulate economic growth. This has been shown by explaining that government spending is simply redistributing money from within the economy and that government spending does not create new jobs. The case where government spending can be beneficial was also explained. This could be accomplished by investing in programs that will increase overall productivity in every sector.
Monopolies decrease competition thus raising the price for certain products. Without monopolies the economy is more efficient. When there is a monopoly, consumer surplus, or the difference between the amount a person is willing to pay and the market price is less than the producer surplus or profit. This leads to an inefficient mix of outputs. A more efficient economy leads to a better utilization of our resources and a stronger economy.
