Capitalism: Means of production are privately owned businesses are not regulated.Socialism: The government controls the means of production.(for capitalism)Capitalism is not only the more effective choice but also the moral one.

I couldn't fit the entire resolution in the title, but here it is:"If people were properly educated and the government wasn't involved in the economy, capitalism would disappear."I am arguing that this is true, my opponent will argue it is false.

In light of these facts, it is hard to disagree with the position that Piracy is very different from Theft....

JuniusNing
TheMarketLibertarian

The point that supporters of personal freedom routinely miss is that when the tax laws governing an economy favor wealthy business owners then fewer consumers are able to afford the products they sell. However, if these same proprietors pay their employees a decent living wage and are taxed an equal percentage from their earnings as the middle and lower classes are required to do then consumerism rises, more products are sold and the rich become a LOT richer. Everyone benefits....
