"Free trade" is "a policy by which a government does not discriminate against imports or interfere with exports by applying tariffs (to imports) or subsidies (to exports). .. Under a free trade policy, prices emerge from supply and demand, and are the sole determinant of resource allocation."

Russia should not be sanctioned!

benko12345678
Geographia

The arguments in this debate will be based on the negative impact of these sanctions against EU countries (such as Slovenia). In an extreme case, the GDP of Slovenia would decrease by 1,3% resulting in a 1,6 billion euro loss, a worse case would be presented in Denmark, which is Russia's number 1 european trading partner, while Slovenia is in second place. Even Germany opposes this act. If an escalation of Europe's stand-off with Moscow over Ukraine results in economic sanctions, more than 6,000...

Businesses do not pay any taxes

brett.winstead
bladerunner060

I will debate that no business pays taxes, whether they are small, medium or giant corporations. This is based on the premise that many people think that ABC Big Company needs to pay more taxes because they are not paying their "fair share." It does not matter if own a business or not to accept this debate. First round is for acceptance but please do not accept the debate unless you are going to finish it. Thanks....

goldman
Wallstreetatheist

In this debate, Round 1 is acceptance. Round 2 is arguments. Round 3 is arguments and rebuttal. Round 4 is rebuttal and conclusion. These days many people in the capitalist countries face loss of job opportunity. Moreover, the stability of human life and the dignity of human beings are being threatened. Capitalism is responsible for those predicaments. I define the capitalism as follows: ``Capitalism leads to unfair and exploitative concentrations of wealth and power in the hands of th...
