Should the U.S. have created a single-payer health care system instead of Obamacare?

ChuckieH
YellowPandaBear

First round is for acceptance, second is for opening statements third and fourth are for rebuttals, and fifth is for closing statements. I will be arguing Pro (for) in this debate as I feel that the U.S. should have created a single-payer health care system instead of passing Obamacare. The opponent will have to argue that Obamacare is a better option than a single-payer health care system, however, they could also argue for an alternative system over single-payer or what was at the time the...

If not in a liquidity trap, monetary policy is more effective than fiscal policy.

A.K
BobTurner

Definitions: A "liquidity trap" is when interest rates cannot be lowered enough to make a significant change in the economy. (In other words, the zero-bound problem). "Monetary policy" is the use of open market operations (buying and selling securities) by a central bank to influence interest rates. "Fiscal policy" is the use of deficit spending to stimulate the economy. Alterations to these definitions may be considered. First round: state that you accept the debate. Actual debate will...

The earth that we both live on is way older than 6000 years contrast to bible literalist belief. There is much evidence proving that the earth is older than 6000 years old. and is in fact 4.5 billion years old. 1, Continental drift The fact that tectonic plates are moving the continents around. there is evidence that several fossils from one kind of dinosaur have been found in both eastern brazil and central-western africa.

Scandinavia & France are both Socialist states, Yet why has Scandinavia done better than France?

LetScotlandGoItAlone14
CoolPeppers12

Essentially both countries have very socialist policies, both believe in a strong welfare state, both tax highly and have good public services... Yet how comes France is seemingly crumbling whilst Scandinavian countries aren't? Could it be smaller populations, less regulation and more natural resources that have helped Scandinavia outperform not just France but the rest of Europe or does it stem from that Viking spirit?...

This is my first time on here so please bear with me... For my first "debate" I'd like to hold a drawing contest. Let's set some rules first. FIRST ROUND IS TO ACKNOWLEDGE DEBATE All art MUST be your own, you can use art from your past but it would most likely be better to just create something on the spot. Your art may be traditional or digital and it may be sketched or finished. Winner will be decided by the quality not quantity and whether or not it is obviously better than mine. Not just equ...
