Inflation is worse than unemployment

Cowboy0108
blackkid

I would first like to begin by stating that both are bad for the economy. Secondly, I am asserting that high inflation is worse than high unemployment for reasons that will be mentioned in R2. 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...

Should Harriet Tubman replace Andrew Jackson on the 20$ bill?

Janemarie25

There is absolutely no reason to replace Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill. Andrew Jackson has been on the twenty dollar bill since 1928, so why change it now? Jackson was the first president to be elected by popular sentiment, and he did so three times! He was also a war hero as a major general in the War of 1812. He was also the first president who was previously a prisoner of war. Jackson wasn't born into wealth either, he worked his way up from nothing. The argumen...

Death Penalty- (Brief, Quick, Debate)

BrownIsBest
theisticscuffles

Death is truly an unusually severe punishment. Unusual in it's pain, unusual in it's suffering, it's finality, and it's enormity. Because of the nature of the death penalty, it treats those humans who are on death row as non humans toyed with and discarded. No matter what the crime, death should never be the choice. If anything, the worse punishment should be a life sentence. Rather than death, we should im...

Progressive Taxation

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)...

Is Russia Better Than Japan

SovietRussia
Midnight1131

I believe Russia has the better economy because they are one of the leading exports of both natural gases and iron. Another thing that would make Russia's economy better is the fact that there is so much unused land towards the east of Russia, which allows room for growth and other things that would require that much land and property....

Slavery

themightyindividual
8elB6U5THIqaSm5QhiNLVnRJA

Debate perimeters: This debate is on the subject of slavery, the act of physically keeping a person in a labor environment he/she does not want to be in. Slavery essentially has nothing to do with wages, only whether or not a person has the decision to leave his work environment. This debate will be argued using fact and reason, no emotional opinions or subjectively heavy thoughts are used in the debate. .........................................................................................
