Solution

  • The country's productivity depends upon the working and non-working population in the country.
  • If more people are working and fewer people are non-working, then resources are invested in other areas, so there is a boost to the country's economic development.
  • Due to a boost in the economy, per capita income increases.
  • Thus, there is an economic benefit to the country: the dividend, which benefits all in the country.
