smart cities lead to inflation

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...

Should we prioritize environment over economy?

zeewee
ViceRegent

Does the environment come before our economy? We need the trees to breath. Some of you might say that we need money to plant the trees. It's true. But how expensive is a packet of seeds? We are destroying nature to build factories to earn money, and when someone brings the topic up we suddenly love trees. Do you realize that trees are the most important element of survival?

The minimum wage should be raised

wilhop17
lyokowarri0r

The purpose of the minimum wage is to help those disenfranchised workers who earn far less than what most Americans would consider acceptable. However, raising the minimum wage will only hurt those same marginalized workers. This is because you force those disenfranchised workers to compete with more qualified workers. Consider this, you are an immigrant who has just moved to the United States. You are largely unfamiliar with the language, culture, or customs of the United States. You need a job...
