NGEpical
ethancentric

Progressive taxation should be allowed for these reasons: First off, the rich have it better off, we can look at them like a well developed, rich in infrastructure society, like the U.S. Most of the world depends on the U.S for exports because the U.S is so well established. This is how we should view this debate, the poor depend on the better-off, better-established rich class to survive and prosper, therefore we should tax the rich more than the other classes (progressive tax)...

Inflation is worse than unemployment

Cowboy0108
blackkid

Lastly, I am not counting the inflation that is commonly referred to as demand pull inflation because this is relatively healthy and is a simple side effect to economic growth. However, I am referring to hyperinflation(the devaluing of currency because there is too much of it) and supply shock inflation (i...

If anything, the worse punishment should be a life sentence. Rather than death, we should im...
