Our economy is carp thanks to the fed


On a debate, I said that the Fed destroyed our economy, my opponent said that "our GDP is better than ever, if that is economic hardship, we should have more of it", I'm sorry to tell you this, but I don't measure how good an economy by how high it's GDP is, I judge it by the following factors: Education: we are 36th in the world, our spending per student is 7,500$, in Finland it is 5,500$, and yet Finland has better grades, the problem isn't money. National debt: 18,000,000,000,000$ Wealt...

Minimum Wage Is Bad Economically (No Minimum Wage)


Rules: 1.(No links or sources) - I want to have a logical and reasonable debate, not a "I am right look at this link" sort of one. (Will go into more detail after) For every expert or graph saying what I propose is bad, there are also ones proposing they are good. Both a no-minimum wage and a high minimum wage have theoretically been successful (With Northern European countries as an example), but using a wage graph from Sweden can't really be applied in America/Canada due to the socioeco...

Is Overpopulation or Lack of Resources a Problem Today?


With today's pace of technological development overpopulation is a problem of the past. For example, the idiotic proposer of doom for mankind Paul Ehrlich "predicted" that in the 1970s tens of millions of people would die in mass famines in India alone. His book "Population Bomb" started in this manner: "The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now. At this late date nothing can preve...

Payday lending Services should be banned


I debated this topic maybe 6-7 months ago and it was mostly one sided. The few who were actually against this method had an argument but it was confusing and all over the place. Also none of these people moved on to the next round in my event (congress). I am debating this again to see if there's new arguments on the negative position that are easy enough to comprehend and that are worth listening too. First round is simply for clarification/acceptance debate starts with me on round 2 Th...
