Best Answer

The spoils system introduced a new level of corruption in American Government as well as placing "leaders" who had no real ability to lead other than their friendship with elected officials.

It is well proven that corruption hurts economic development as well as the people's trust in their government. People work together more efficiently when there is mutual trust, thus everything becomes less efficient and waste expands.
