بالتأكيد، لن تخلق النقود المصالح العمومية مثل القضاء على مرض أو بناء مؤسسات قوية، لكن يمكنها أن تضع سقفا أعلى لكيفية مساعدتنا للعائلات على تحسين حياتهم.

Example sentence(s):
  • Of course, giving cash won't create public goods like eradicating disease or building strong institutions, but it could set a higher bar for how we help individual families improve their lives. بالتأكيد، لن تخلق النقود المصالح

متطلبات أعلى؛ متطلبات أكثر حزمًا


Explanation:
set a high/low bar: To establish an expected, required, or desired (but ultimately constrictive) standard of quality.

For example, if someone previously had to score 7 on the test, they have to score 9 now.

This is why "سقف" would not be the best choice here.

Example sentence(s):
  • يفرض اختبار الحد النهائي متطلبات أعلى مقارنة باختبار الحد المرحلي إلخ
