jobless growth is the cause of poverty
Zarroette

Con

I thank my opponent for offering to debate this.



The Burden of Proof


My opponent has the burden of proof to affirm the resolution: “Jobless growth is the cause of poverty”. For him/her to affirm the resolution, he/she must show that jobless growth is the sole cause of poverty (hence the term “the cause”). In the event that there is shown another cause of poverty, or in the event that jobless growth is shown not to be the cause of some poverty, I win the debate, too.


Since I do not have the burden of proof, and my opponent has yet to make an argument, I await his/her argument, so that I may begin attempting to refute what is written – I cannot do so unless my opponent makes an argument.



Definition


Jobless growth: A jobless recovery or jobless growth is an economic phenomenon in which a macroeconomy experiences growth while maintaining or decreasing its level of employment (http://en.wikipedia.org...).



I await my opponent’s arguments.

I've seen pro's arguments before, if they are what I think they are. They're actually pretty good arguments. I'm surprised to see Zarroette take an economic debate and look forward to seeing how she does. I get the feeling pro is going to come out strong.

Are you saying that unemployment is sole cause of poverty?
or
Are you saying that unemployment is one of the factors which caused poverty?
or
Are you saying that employing all work-able people would end the poverty?
