Disadvantages of the lottery

The European Union reacted to this decision of the Portuguese government extremely unfriendly. They think, that the drawing of such cars can greatly spoil the auto industry of Portugal itself, because at the lottery they say the make and brand of the car, which means they advertise. Furthermore, attracting citizens to help the government in this way is not very correct. Conservationists also criticized, since the use of vehicles worsens the environment, and there is no need to advertise cars unnecessarily. Small business representatives say, that creating an Inn code for every buyer of the smallest things will take a very long time, therefore, individual entrepreneurship in the country can be greatly reduced. Such a move by the authorities will end completely unpredictably. This year may, how to improve the country unspeakably, and spoil it even more, destroying domestic production.

Lottery reasons

The Portuguese government has many international loans, therefore, the country's budget is sorely lacking for the most important elements, such as education, medicine, etc.. Also in the country, as in any other, there is a percentage of traders, not paying tax, differently - black market. The authorities took a smart and profitable move, attracting citizens to their side through rewards. Everyone will want to try their luck in this lottery, especially when all you need to do to win is to demand a check Inn from the seller. Moreover, Portugal is not the first country, practicing such methods. The same methods exist in Argentina, Colombia and other states. Unfortunately, due to the lack of similar methods in Europe, critics and neighboring countries speak out against lotteries.
