It's a funnily interesting question. Sounds like a GP question which brings me to wonder whether you are not a student looking for job done easily.
I would want someone to answer your question though because I personally think that some Mauritians are getting richer while others poorer.
And though education is free with the possibility of needy students being offered financial help, those coming from low economic status are not taking this advantage. And academically speaking, the quality of education is decreasing with too many factors affecting their need and want to study.
Many Mauritians spend more than they can afford and live on loans. They need to have sat-channels or Iphones rather than an appropriate house to live in. High loan interest, no savings.
Materially speaking, there is inflation but not that high. We can still afford a decent meal but with so many fast food options, people do not realise that with Rs1000 spent on Pizzas for a day, they can buy a month's vegetables.
And finally, most of us pay more attention to our wants than needs. The generation coming up... scares me.
Any economist around?
