employers should adopt a four-day working week

I believe that we should not adopt a four-day working week because having a shorter workweek can ruin the competitiveness and it produced billions in additional costs. stress levels will rise when working those long hours and people will become mentally drained...

Universal Basic Income

Varrack

This debate is for 1harder's Spring Regular Tournament. All the settings of this debate are in accordance with the tournament's rules. Resolution: The U.S. should replace existing welfare programs with a universal basic income (UBI). I propose that every adult receive an annual, basic income of $10,000. This income would be unconditional, earned whether one is employed or not. Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare would be exempt as they aren't really considered welfare. First round...

eagleman21

yes, interested? I would prefer if you would have your argument fully written or at least fully planned before accepting the debate. I did leave the debate open so you can technically do whatever you wish but that's what I would prefer. rules1.) My opponent must argue capitalism is good or neutral in terms of over-all effects. I will argue that it...

Communism

Ok, so I did one of these today, but it was taken by a troll, so I'm trying again. Communism has been tried throughout history, but has yet to become stable so I argue that it can't work. Let the games begin....

Use of capital replaces labour capital and is bad for the economy

PapaHope
Tracer11

The use of capital replaces the labor capital thereby increasing unemployment. Machines will replace in a bid to increase profits but neglecting the needs of people. Robots do not feed families nor do they have responsibilities apart from the services they may go through with time. I object to the laws that allows firms and organizations to retrench humans from their daily wages. These laws are with no humor and sense of humanity. Only selfish people would impose and approve such laws....

Capitalism is much better than socialism/communism

TigerThePredator
Flannery

Socialism and communism, in my view, is evil, and we as a society should be moving away from people with this viewpoint, such as Bernie Sanders, because their goal is to implement restrictions over our capitalist economy so that they can exert governmental control and tyranny over the people. There are a few points to be made here: 1.) Communism/socialism discourages innovations and creativity. For example, because major tech companies such as Apple or Google have a financial interest in crea...

Donald Trump's proposed border wall is more beneficial than not.

Debates like these are the reason I came back to this site. I'm happy I found someone who knows what they're talking about when it comes to subjects such as this, too many times I can't have a debate let alone conversation without someone throwing baseless accusations and insults around instead of explaining their point of view, so thank you in advance, Nd2400, for debating me on this topic. I believe a border wall between Freedom Land and Mexifries is benefical over...
