Capitalism vs. Socialism

bballcrook21
Idrees

Firstly, good luck to whomever may accept this challenge. There is a clear distinction in these systems, as neither can exist without a certain type of government. Socialism requires a centralized, looming federal government that restricts liberty for the good of the nation. Capitalism, on the other hand, requires a decentralized, hands off federal government that leaves most matters to local governments, as local governments can address issues with more precision. Socialism, on one hand,...

Minimum Wage Should Not Be Raised

Brian1813

I will be arguing for a stable federal minimum wage in the United States. I personally believe that the minimum wage should be abolished altogether, as I believe in almost nonexistent government intervention in business. However, I am arguing that we should not increase the minimum wage any higher then it already is on a federal basis. This comes from the fact that Seattle, NYC, LA, and Chicago have all raised their minimum wages to an exorbitant amount, which will eventually end up in los...

Governments should switch from capitalism to socialism due to technological advances

Mr.Yamamoto

One source predicts that one third of the jobs will be replaced by robots by 2025 [1]. It is almost undoubted that machines are capable of taking over human jobs. Artificial intelligence has improved and it may reach the level of human intelligence soon. Baxter the robot is capable of doing variety of jobs. It can still be developed and advanced. It operates tasks around 1/10 of a speed of a human would. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oD9DE0HjMM4 Although it doesn't function as fast as...

That should minecraft servers be systematized like a society?

actionguy777

Ladies and gentleman,as we know,the game Minecraft enable players to build their own constructions out of textured cubes in a 3-Dimensional procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, resource gathering, crafting, and combat.These things I mentioned above,are the basics of Minecraft. In the multiplayer servers,every player in-game shares the same world.Unlike the singleplayer world,the players need to suffer their consequences playing with others.For example,...

Local production of goods is the best way to stimulate economic growth of developing countries

xenofied
Praxidicai

Unprocessed goods (ex. lumber) used for the production of products are cheaper to import, meaning less money earned by the exporter, than importing processed goods (like furniture). This means that during the entire export/import process of the production of a particular good, the countries that export more processed goods (furniture) than unprocessed goods (lumber) end up making most of the money available in that process. The reason is simple - the steps it takes to gather a raw material requi...

The United States should convert to the Metric system

qtstepp
dog7

The United States should NOT convert to the metric system because in order to convert, we would have to change every single road sign, every single container, every single map, every single GPS system, and much much more. Millions upon millions of dollars spent just to make America the same as everyone else. But the American Standard System is just part of what makes America unique. Our money needs to go to more important things, like schools and creating more jobs. Now, you may argue that the c...
