Keynesian economics is valid

A.K
Jevinigh

This is the only acceptable definition of Keynesian economics: "Recessions are caused by insufficient Aggregate Demand" "Government spending can boost Aggregate Demand" "Monetary policy alone is often insufficient to boost Aggregate Demand" Additional definitions are unacceptable, although these definitions may be negotiated. First round: accept the debate. Second: openings, no rebuttals. Third: rebuttals. Fourth: closing....

Capitalism vs Socialism (Economically) Dbt 2

Barnabas
henryajevans

The first debate of this sort ended in a forfeit, and thus I am going to re-up it. I will post my opening again. "I will argue for the advocation of pure capitalism with the only socialism being in the providing of very minimal needs to those who need it (i.e. Education, Food, Water, Shelter, Healthcare, etc)." And on acceptance, I will likely repost my first round, in hopes of founding a counter-argument. 3000 character limit....

This is not exactly a debate. I'm doing a project/debate on the topic listed above at school. I'm on the opposition side for the actual debate.

Large companies should be allowed to hire prisoners for labor work.

debatergorl
Mr.Grace

America imprisons more people than any other country in the world. The Prison Industrial Complex is a major institution in the US and quite a controversial one if I might add. There are many debatable elements of this industry, but I would like to focus on one in particular: Should large companies be allowed to hire prisoners for labor work? As of now, large businesses (such as Walmart, BP, Macy's, etc) are hiring prisoners to do labor jobs. Jobs include basic needs like construction and p...

Access to drinking water ought to be valued as a human right instead of as a commodity

TrueJustice
TheBrorator

First let it be known that the con side of the resolution is not stating that water is not a human right but rather we must value it as a commodity also in order to keep the access of water. The con will explain thoroughly to the extent of every detail in this case. In order to win this case the con will value social welfare. with social welfare, society is provided with certain minumum standards and opportunities. It supports life in the factor that it looks to the needs of the people. To...

The use of pennies in the US pricing system should be eliminated.

oheesak
wierdman

Today, pennies have become little more than a nuisance to our economy and therefore should be eliminated. In the Harris Poll, an online, nationwide poll that surveyed 2,136 adults, a total of 59% of those adults were opposed to the abolishing of the penny. The first of two main reasons people believed that the penny should remain in circulation was that the pennies served as a historical memorial to a particularly beloved president, Abraham Lincoln. In 21 December 2005, President Bush signed...
