Answer: It’s worth prioritising.


Previous blogs have shared three great reasons for prioritising investment in bringing people together
 – 1: Like infrastructure expenditure, better social connections between people makes the economy more productive.
– 2: It doesn’t always cost money
– 3: It actually makes more money than it costs.

This final answer is the most obvious answer of all: It’s worth prioritising.

A country where people from different backgrounds divide and don’t trust each other is more violent, more fearful, less healthy and less happy.

Bringing together people from different ages, incomes and ethnicities means making our country safer, healthier and happier for us and our children. For most people, that’s worth a bob or two.
