Highly taxing the rich and giving welfare to the poor is fundamentally flawed.

First round is acceptance, second is opening statement, third is no set style, and fourth is closing statements and no new arguments. BOP is shared in this debate, so both pro and con must prove their stance on this res...

The United States should regulate trade.

This debate is about free trade. Free trade is a policy where the government doesn't regulate imports via tariffs or exports via subsidies. Instead, prices are determined solely by supply and demand. I will argue against free trade and Con will argue for. There are three rounds. The first is for acceptance. The second is for arguments. The third is for rebuttals. I have made the voting open to members with a minimum Elo of 2500. I also ask voters explain their decision. That should keep ra...

Raising the Minimum Wage

Though at face value the raising of the minimum wage may seem like it is a good idea, the future economic repercussions are vastly more costly. Think of the people that the raise of the minimum wage will hurt. The small business employer has to pay more in an already tough market with lots of expenses. He or she now has some options on how he wants to deal with workers needing to be payed more. He could either pay them and cut other costs like product value, resulting in loss of sales, which the...
