Public Interest and the Government
Public Interest in the basic terms is the well being of general public. By this definition, anything done for the welfare of people or the society is called public interest. Despite the definition, public interest is claimed by the government in matters where state’s security is at risk. It is determined by comparing the profit or benefits to the losses attached with the decision. Anything affecting the citizen rights, their security and health, and their finances is being referred in Public Interest. Management of local and national government most of the time concerns over public interest. A public company is regulated under public interest as individuals depend on that company’s performance.
