Capitalism Vs. Socalism

BicoulourOcean94
kyleflanagan97

Capitalism is better than Socialism in many ways. First and foremost Capitalism gives power to the people and Socialism gives power to the Government. I hate the Idea of people living in poverty and going to bed hungry. Socialism is not the answer to these problems. The distribution of wealth does not work, it rewards people for minimum amounts of work, eventually you will run out of other people's money to use. Capitalism rewards the people for working hard. I like to think of these two ideals...

Minimum Wage Raise

Jbmelk

I am against a raise in the minimum wage for a few reasons. 1. A minimum wage would force many jobs to be lost. Say for example, if there was a $15 minimum wage, then I will use Dunder Mifflin Paper as an example. They have 15 employees in one branch and they all get paid, say $9/hr. Dunder Mifflin is breaking even and doing ok. But, now that the federal government has stepped in and raised the minimum wage to $15/hr, Dunder Mifflin has had to fire people due to the higher wages. Now Dunder...

smart cities lead to inflation

Mayankshandilya

Let me clarify that I am not a Luddite who is against deploying new technology. I am merely arguing that technology is a useful tool for achieving other objectives and is not a goal in itself. smart cities are ultimately about clustering smart people and not steel-and-chrome towers: s. Building human capital clusters also requires active management and investment. One obvious strategy is to weave educational, cultural and intellectual institutions into the fabric of the city. Yet, Indian urban...

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...

Should the U.S.A. raise taxes on imports?

dumbocrat
BoulderBull

We have a national debt problem owed to other countries that is growing every minute. If the US would just put a penalty on raising the debt it wouldn't be a problem. It would most likely reduce imports therefor be giving jobs to US citizens, reducing transportation costs, reducing transportation emissions and make more US manufactured products. Without doing so we are sitting ducks waiting to go into poverty....
