We need to increase government spending and lower taxes

MasterDebated
samwight

Taxes take away from a persons paycheck and they have less money to spend the higher taxes are. If people have more income then they'll spend more on businesses and improve the economy. Government spending is like borrowing if they don't take out taxes. This money is good to have in the economy because businesses aren't spending enough money to stimulate the economy because they're afraid of the low growth....

(I will also be arguing that the federal minimum wage should be indexed to inflation, to keep up with the rising cost of living--a point which my opponent can either choose to refute or ignore.)Con will argue that r...

Communism works if applied correctly

Communism will never work in a practical sense. Sure, idealistically communism would work perfectly right? However, due to the constraints that human nature puts us in, whether it be selfishness, greed, etc., communism (regardless of the type) will never work....

I challenge ProgressiveDem to this debate. He will argue that the US minimum wage should be 20$, while I will argue against this. I think little more clarifications are needed. Obviously, sources and graphs should be used whenever possible to support your case. ...

Rent controls are applied in big cities such as New York where apartment rents are regulated by the government where it cannot rise above a certain level. This is a terrible economic policy because it goes against demand and supply, and since landlords receive MUCH less rent income than they could receive without the rent control, they have no incentive to regularly maintain the apartment (interior and exterior) because the costs of doing so greatly outweigh the benefits. If there is no governme...
