Countries with a long average working time are more economically successful than those countries which do not have a long working time. To what extend do you agree or disagree?

Some people believe that lengthening the working
hours
of citizens could allow the country to have better economic development than the nations that have shorter office
hours
.
This
essay completely disagrees with that argument for some reasons.
Firstly
, a long working day is not enough if people don’t use effective management.
Therefore
, increasing working time is not useful without the use of technologies.
For instance
, it is widely known that North Korea’s population is considered the most working population in the world. An average working day there lasts for nine
hours
.
However
,
this
country is not economically advanced.
This
means that the length of working
hours
does not affect economic development.
Secondly
, a long working time does not guarantee a high outcome.
On the contrary
, it negatively impacts the results since long-hour workers are likely to have higher fatigue. They
consequently
cause a lack of concentration and decreased productivity. In the worst case, they might get a work-related disease
such
as depression or even suicide.
For example
, the Japanese are well-known as long-time workers, and their industriousness has contributed to
