Dor Cohen Posted 12 months ago How many hours should one work per day? Hi, Thanks for explaining. I don't understand much in economics but I think that when the economy grows, it eventually helps the individuals: bigger paycheck, better services given by the country, more job positions etc. When country A isn't as productive as country B, less money would flow to country A. Depending on the country's laws, it impacts it's income (if taxes involved) and people would get fired from their workplace.
