We might have a lot of money compared to other parts of the world, but even our budgets are finite. Every cent and every euro spent on one project becomes unavailable from our collective piggy bank, so we need to decide where our priorities lie.

 

What should the EU budget and our national budgets be spent on, and why?

How do we balance short-term needs and goals with long-term investments?

Should we stop spending so much money altogether, but focus on saving it and think about austerity measures?

My idea is about helping European Central Bank to cut the expenses of printing 1c, 2c and 5c of Euro€. Also, will help banks to increase their deposits up to 12 million/year. Furthermore, will help the users of this application to save more money. The decision of madame Ursula, that's is about the abolition of 1 and 2c is not the solution, that's the disaster. Please contact me so I can tell you more for this idea.
