    Should the government spend more money

    on scientific research?

    Some people believe that the government should pay for scientific research, while others oppose it strongly.

    On the one hand, they argue that scientific research saves and improves millions of people’s lives every year. Besides, when a country spends money on research, it also creates new industries and new jobs.

    On the other hand, others think that private companies should be the ones investing in it. This way the government could spend the money on social matters like education and social care.

    In conclusion, while many think that governments should be responsible for investing in scientific research, others believe it should be the responsibility of private companies.

    In my view, we must be aware that  (debemos tener en cuenta que )our lives shouldn’t depend on private companies’ interests.
