Minimum Wage Should Not Be Raised

bballcrook21

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...

Hey! We need to Save the African Elephants! Did you know the African Elephants have the biggest ears? People are hunting them down so they can cut of their trunks and sell them for money. They can live up to 70 years in the wild! The African elephants are the largest land animals on Earth. We would not want to loose an amazing creature like that would we?...

Fast Food $15/hour Wages

treble_clef_hkd

So, lately fast food employees have been rioting for a $15/hour wage. I think this is ridiculous. First of all you flip burgers and make fries for a living. If you want something that pays higher, get your butt out there and find a job that does. Also, speaking as a 16-year old that is hopefully getting a job in the next few weeks (want McDonald's) I don't want a $15/hour job. If these wages are accepted, I would be making more than my mom does working at the public library. I'm a teenager in hi...

Gay marrige

Maciebaker

Hello, to whoever may read this. I do not mean to offend you but these are my beliefs and I do feel strongly about them. So, be prepared lol. I have always felt gay marrige should be legalized. Quite frankly until this week when it finally was, I never thought it would happen. I'm not a member of the LGBT community, but I'm 100% for it. Don't get me wrong, it's not a total shock to me when people want to use bible verses and Jesus Christ as reasons gays shouldn't marry. I understand completely....

Obama's plan to tax the rich would do little to solve the debt problem.

RoyLatham
God_Soldier

President Obama says that Republicans are protecting millionaires and billionaires from increased taxes. He further implies that increasing such taxes could have a substantial impact towards balancing the budget. He has proposed a "Buffet Plan" whereby the rich would have to pay a minimum of 30% tax on income. This debate is about whether this plan would generate enough revenue to significantly reduce the ongoing deficits in the United States. Symbolic or social reasons are not a subject of...

Demand equation with many variables and finding Profit maximization

pincivma
dukula

This is not really an argument but a way of finding out how to maximize profits. Here is my problem. I have run a regression for a hypothetical business to find out its demand equation. I ran a linear relationship for the last 10 years. Quantity is a function of price, consumer disposable income, and population. Q = a + bP+ cI + d Pop where a is the intercept and b,c and d are the coefficients Q is the quantity demanded P is the price, I is the disposable income and Pop is the population...
