The spillover theory does work, but in the opposite direction

Imagine an empty pot. A house, a neighborhood with empty pots.

In the corner dining room, a delicious stew is prepared and each neighbor brings their own pot to take home. Today 20 families filled their pots, filled their bellies with something warm. Tomorrow the dining room doesn’t open. Today is one less day of thinking about what we eat.

The two mangoes and fifty are enough for an onion and a package of noodles. It will be tomorrow’s meal. If we get some mangoes with fifty more, we can take the bus to go to school to have a snack.

Today we walked through all the streets, the bank streets and the bus stops, people are not buying almost anything. Everyone clutches their pockets tightly. Today I sold 4 pairs of socks and three rolls of bags. I buy a tomato sauce and some bread to eat with my tea. Mario, the neighbor who no longer has gas in the bottle, came to have tea with us, something warm before going to the envelope.

Now imagine that the dining room did open, and that it not only served 20 but also all the families in the neighborhood. Imagine that now you were able to open every day. Imagine that the money from the bags is to fill the jug, and the money from the socks is to take the ride to school.

Imagine the school full of kids. Imagine that everyone had breakfast today and that the most important thing will not be the snack.

Imagine that pot in the dining room overflowing with food that falls on the neighbors’ plates. Imagine one less worry per day, a guaranteed lunch.

Maybe this way we can save something to buy shoes for Tomás so that he can also go to school when it rains.

Imagine that Tomás can finish primary school, and while going out to sell bags he can also continue secondary school. That way he could get a better job, maybe they’ll hire him to clean in a supermarket.

And who would say that we can also imagine (imagination has no limits) that Tomás, despite having slacked off a couple of times, a few years of repetition, etc., graduates from high school and can begin a university career. A technique at least. Imagine Tomás and all his neighbors in the neighborhood studying in a tertiary school, receiving training from teachers, social workers, mechanical technicians, etc.

They and their children would no longer depend on bags, socks, or the plate of food in the dining room.

The spillover theory is posed the other way around then. We have to turn it upside down and instead of filling champagne glasses, we have to fill the workers’ pots.

Full pots spill over into more possibilities, and growing possibilities. A country with more professionals is a country with more capacity to develop. And with more development, more value added, and with more value added, more profits, less debt, more independence, more decision-making capacity, more production, etc.

In short, a country with full pots is a country with more freedom.
