Marx's Labour Theory of Value is Superior to Subjective Value Theory

Vantrigar
Concade

My argument in this debate will be that Marx's labour theory of value, as outlined in Capital and elsewhere, is the only valid theory of value, and in particular that it is superior to the theories currently being touted by contemporary advocates (Mises institute, LearnLiberty etc) of the subjective value theory proposed by the Austrian school. This will not be a debate about socialism vs free market capitalism or libertarianism, although some limited discussion of the political ramifications of...

Is taxing the rich the best way to solve poverty?

TurkeyMary
madhumita

I believe that taxing the rich is not the right way to solve poverty because if they are not taxed more, they are more likely to start a business or a company, opening up more jobs to other people in need of one. They are also more likely to give to charity if they have more money. What are your opinions about this topic???...

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...
