The difference between 2016 and 2022 in terms of income and consumption shows that income inequality was 0.482 in 2016 and 0.499 in 2022. Inequality has increased to 0.324 in 2016 and 0.334 in 2022. To implement this strategy to achieve growth, the government is borrowing from abroad, amounting to 100 billion dollars. A large part of those who will be responsible for paying this debt are now children, teenagers and young people.

Lack of concern for institutional education of children and adolescents, proper education of youth, inclusion of them in economic activities, the absence of effective planning is either a sign of indifference to the future of the country or part of a plan to perpetuate this situation. The policies followed are not only leaving future citizens unprepared and untrained, but also paving the way for future workforce dependency.

These policies do not fall from the sky, they are created and implemented through a political process. As a result, these statistics should not only be considered as numbers, it is also necessary to understand why and how this situation has arisen.
