the money is an important thing to buy the resources to satisfy the basic need of the human being . previously the basic need of the human being is food clothes and shelter but now the basic need is not only consist of the these three thing but more than this. as the basic need has increased the resource required to satisfy this need has also increased thus requiring the government to spend more money to buy the resources. in order to buy more resources we need to divert the flow of money spend toward the satisfaction of the need. as the mentioned that the as long as people in a society are hungry or out of work or lack the basic skills needed to survive, the use of public resources to support the arts is inappropriate-and, perhaps, even cruel-when one considers all the potential uses of such money.as we have saw that the rich people are becoming richer and the poor people ar e becoming poorer.
