The Minimum Wage Should Not be Raised

DerKurbis
NorthKorea

Raising the minimum wage results in job loss. A 2006 review of more than 100 minimum wage studies by David Neumark and William Wascher found that about 2/3 found negative employment effects. It hurts low-skilled workers - reduces employment among low-skilled workers (reduces the employment of younger, less-educated individuals). It has little effect on reducing poverty. It may result in higher prices for consumers; a 2007 study from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago found that restaurant price...

Is the American Dream achieveable?

Niall_McGee27
CodeFunny

If you work hard you can achieve the American Dream. This means not being lazy and doing what it takes to achieve it. People who say it isn't achieveable because either they don't have it or don't want it bad enough. My apologizes. The American Dream is defined as being able to live in a stable job with stable income, enough to satisifed the needs without concern....

Stateless society.

Thelibertarianmetalhead
Reformist

I am an Anarcho capitalist, and I will be arguing that a state does not need to exist in order for there to be a thriving society. My opponent will be arguing that the state is necessary. My conditions are: My opponent states his opening argument in round one, I start round two and we continue the debate until around five where I make my last argument and my opponent can only make us closing statement, with no additional arguments. This is fair because I gave up around one to state the rules of...

Redistribution of Wealth

GrandOldParty
Hayd

Redistribution of Wealth is not only one of the most poisonous things to a Capitalist society, but to a society in general. A society where one is taught to work hard and earn their living could not possibly flourish under such dictation. I am challenging Hayd on this particular issue because I couldn't help but noticed he supported distribution of wealth on his profile. While I can respect that we do, in fact, live in a world of varied economies, but is redistribution of wealth a morally respon...
