Jevinigh

(I will also be arguing that the federal minimum wage should be indexed to inflation, to keep up with the rising cost of living--a point which my opponent can either choose to refute or ignore.)Con will argue that r...

Keynesian economics is valid

A.K
Jevinigh

This is the only acceptable definition of Keynesian economics: "Recessions are caused by insufficient Aggregate Demand" "Government spending can boost Aggregate Demand" "Monetary policy alone is often insufficient to boost Aggregate Demand" Additional definitions are unacceptable, although these definitions may be negotiated. First round: accept the debate. Second: openings, no rebuttals. Third: rebuttals. Fourth: closing....

All Human Actions are Taken Through Self-Interest

MyDinosaurHands
Loveshismom

I believe that every action a human being has ever taken has been motivated by self-interest. My opponent should argue that at least some human actions occur without self-interest (or just selfishness if you'd prefer) as the motivator. Any arguments that get all nitpicky involving some kind of out there scenarios with mind control or whatever should not be counted when determining the better arguments. My opponent may talk about coercion, like a gun to the head type scenario, but any sce...

Should the USA own technically own the moon?

derplington
spacenights

Yes, I know there was agreement signed that no individual nation can own any object off of the planet Earth. My question is, why if one had gotten to it first, should it not technically be theirs. I'm not saying that if the US did own it that to look at it you would have to pay tribute, but that since we did make it there first, and before the agreement was signed, that it should be ours. I would condemn using it as a way to spy on other nations, or to house a military weapon, but just bragging...
