India and China, Asia's most populated countries. Which one is better? Which country has more pros than the other one. I say that China has a lot better in economics and lifestyle than India. China's GDP with an average $3362, but with India with an utmost low of $1298. China's GDP is 3 times greater than that of India's. Their lifestyle is completely different too. When China invented the chopsticks 3000 years ago, India is still eating with their every dirty hands. China has done things I...

Fast food should be illegal. It's unsafe to eat. People should vote for them so they can be closed down. An old saying is that fast food means fast death. If you eat it, you can have some medical and health problems if you have it a lot....

Redistribution of Wealth

sconifer
Contra

Focusing first on your claim that the redistribution of wealth (or, more generally, resources) would somehow inherently destroy all incentive to work on the part of those from whom resources were taken, this is just patently untrue. It is a well-known historical fact of economics that, even when corporations are taxed at supposedly exorbitant rates (e.g., about 90% under FDR), American industry nevertheless thrives, CEOs still make out like bandits, the populace as a whole is no less likely to p...

Capitalism is a better economic system then communism.

browley14
SCOTSKNIGHT12

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...
