Capitalism is a better economic system then communism.

Communism just doesn't work. Plain and simple every communist country eventually fails, just look at history. The soviet union, Cuba, China, and Vietnam. All of those communist regimes failed. Why? Because you remove any incentive to work! It's simple economics, if you don't have a reason then you won't do it. http://historum.com/philosophy-political-science-sociology/47950-failure-communist-countries.html...

Cutting Taxes Would Stimulate The Economy

michael90000
PierceMoore

Rules: I will write an essay and my opponent will rebut on Round One, along with his or her acceptance. By Round Three, there will be no new points, only conclusions. Good luck to both sides! Cutting taxes would increase the purchasing power of the people. This means businesses will profit more from consumers and with more money, we can experience increased overall wages, increased earnings for everyone, and this will be beneficial to the country's overall prosperity. This will also lea...

Barter - Exchange of goods and services for other goods and services; no legal tender involved.Monetary - Legal tender; dollar, euro, etc.Thanks in advance for accepting! Feel free to...

Improbswrong

There are many problems occurring around the world, people are starving, families are being torn apart, and almost entire nations socially and economically imprisoned. Many factors cause this to exist, I will reference specifically Mexico and south America. We will begin from a somewhat recent event, which is NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) this was an economic policy originally thought up by Reagan. It was not signed into law until 1992 under President Clinton. It was said to help...

minimum wage should exist

i am for a minimum wage. i am not arguing a specifc amount, just that it be a reasonable amount a single person can live off of reasonably. we're only debating whether it should exist or not, not how much. i am responding to common objection to the wage from the get go. anywhere i look anyone can get a job for minimum wage if they have their bits together. the only people i know, from experience only which might not be accurate i concede, who can't get a job at minimum wage are the dim wit sl...

'fair trade' not 'free trade'

linate
Aerogant

i am an advocate of "fair trade" not free trade.... or at least "managed trade", not laissez faire trade. the primary flaw with free trade is the idea of the "race to the bottom". countries compete with each other so much that it's a detriment to everyone.... they have to start cutting regulations and wages etc just to compete. perhaps for a country that is just starting to develop, or in the process of developing, they being on the receiving end will reap benefits of something they wouldn't...
