  1. Public sector

    The public sector refers to "the part of the economy concerned with providing basic government services. The composition of the public sector varies by country, but in most countries the public sector includes such services as the police, military, public roads, public transit, primary education and healthcare for the poor. The public sector might provide services that non-payer cannot be excluded from, services which benefit all of society rather than just the individual who uses the service, and services that encourage equal opportunity."
