"Why should government take the burden of providing infrastructure of cash economy to its citizens?"

Why should govt take the burden of constructing roads?

Why should govt build and manage hospitals?

Why should govt take burden of anything?

Because govt has a job to do. It has a job of facilitating things for welfare of its citizens. Money is a way of storing value created and for a society to exchange values, money is important. Cash is the oldest and most commonly used form of money. India doesn't have the infrastructure to eliminate cash completely.

Hence govt should take this burden and appoint educated people at posts like SBI chief

People should not depend on governments for growth

Why should people depend on governments for growth?

People are desperately depending on governments for growth. So, development became an agenda in elections. Every government is trying to boast themselves as champions of development. Governments are creating fictitious figures to show high growth rates. But, understand that earning capacity of common person decreased in Capitalism. Let us compare the earning capacity of a common man in this aspect. About 25 years back, the salary of a fresh graduate was Rs: 600/- per month and price of a meal was Rs: 2.25. It means that one could buy 267 meals with that salary. Nowadays, we can take Rs: 8,000/- as an average salary for a fresh graduate and the price of a meal is Rs: 80/-. It means that one can buy 100 meals with this salary. Then, whose purchasing capacity is more? Actually, the standard of living of an average Indian has come down by about 2.7 times from the last 25 years. Previously, even if one man in a family earns money, they could bring up about 3 – 4 children. But, it is very difficult to bring up one child nowadays even if both parents work hard in their jobs. It is enough proof that our standards of living have come down. So, we should not depend on growth rates of governments

Let's cure our systems of education of their ailments

My personal belief is that we need teachers who say "striving for better educational standards." Passion in teachers can change a lot.

I feel there are challenges at three levels :

1.) Quality and Passion of teachers

2.) Curriculum which is old and obsolete. When I say curriculum I mean not just the content but the whole reward system, marks system, fail pass system.

3.) No exposure. Education's basic purpose is to provide an exposure to students so that they can understand themselves better, but the mugging up system kills curiosity of find more after exposure to a particular subject in kids.

Equal Opportunities to grow

1. Imposition of tax on transfer of inheritance properties

2. Imposition of Registration fee on transfer of inheritance properties

3. Removing tax incentives on housing loans in case of more than one house

4. Imposing property tax on vacant urban lands to bring them into usage as well as to curb black money and also to get returns invested on them equally with other lands.

Is it time to worry about jobs in India given the way technology is going and population time bomb is ticking

We are far away from automation taking jobs away from Indians. We are laggards as far as technology adoption is concerned. Automation is not stealing jobs from Americans yet, so it is till far away from India

On awaremonk and in real life I have come across people who support communism. What did economics classes look like in communist countries, particularly in the USSR?

Economics classes in communist countries were generally focused much more on microeconomics and industrial planning, while other courses focused on macroeconomic theory and market forces.

What would have been the end of WW2 if atom bombs weren't invented then?

A naval blockade of Japan.

Without outside supplies Japan would have had to surrender in little time. And since Japan is an island, it is relatively easy to blockade. The nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were entirely unnecessary from a military standpoint and were almost certainly carried out to impress Russia and to increase US standing in the post war period.
