Indonesia – 12 Biggest Economies In The World by 2025? Yeah, Right…

14 Feb

Indonesia's targets are unrealistic

Oh so this is the problem! This is one of Indonesia’s biggest problems!… When our Government sets a target.. they set unrealistic ones that would be almost impossible for us to achieve! They will be pushing the country to reach this target and we are so obviously not capable of doing it.

The Indonesian Government declared that Indonesia is targeting to be one of the 12 biggest and most established economies .. IN THE WORLD.. by 2025. Ooooh dear, we can’t even control the price of chillies, and now we’re trying to be the biggest economy.. yeah, right. I don’t mean to be negative, but how are we supposed to improve when you give us difficult targets? It’s like giving a high school algebra question to a first grade student. Even if we do get to be one of the 12 biggest economies in the world, but with all the social inequalities and the poverty, it’s all just a lie.

Why don’t we focus on improving our education system? Or the protection of TKI (Migrant Workers)? or the conservation of museums to increase tourism income? All of those could help the Indonesian economy. If our country is pushed and forced to be one of the biggest economies, a lot of people may suffer in the process. Indonesia could end up being the country with  ‘Biggest National Debt’ or ‘Biggest Number of Corruption Cases’. If we want the Indonesian economy to improve, Indonesian people should stop being selfish and greedy. The ones who get rich are only some lucky individuals..

Actually, Indonesia CAN be a successful country, especially if we look at our agricultural and natural resources. However, the glitch in our system is very obvious when we compare the fate of the farmers and the company owners. Social inequality is so obvious. Indonesia has one of the biggest centralisation problems in the world, everything happens in Jakarta. Jakarta is the centre of economy and business, centre of politics, centre of commercialism, centre of entertainment, etc. So employment can mostly be found in Jakarta.

It’s much better to create smaller targets that are possible to achieve, and create bigger targets later, than creating huge, difficult and unrealistic targets which encourages the government to force, lie and corrupt, while the people suffer.
