fdi or foreign direct investments has helped india and its farmers to regain money for its economic stability but in the midst it is destroying small shops as they have to close their shop and work in these mall with low salaries and creating competiton for work creating troubles so being the greatest debator lets see if u can win this
Debate Round No. 1


Thank you for accepting well i surveyed and found on the net that US accounts for 84% of the total income from the FDI stocks. This is only helping your country not us man what benefit are we getting also the most important that i am noticing is that the direct contact between the producers and the buyers is adding cost to the selling price of items. Vegetables,soft drinks etc are so costly making it more difficult for consumers. What will you say?


We have good things coming from it. We can see that India is a 3rd world country. They need money. I've heard you can't even find a bagel in Mumbai. Without India our products would be so expensive our economy would go down faster than a fat guy who fell over.

Here are some tips for Con:

Make care full definitions. How are foreign direct investments distinguished from foreign indirect investments? How large are such investments? Give some examples of the concerns you have. Think about what readers need to know to understand the problem.

Always use correct spelling and grammar. Capitalize correctly "india">"India" Avoid texting abbreviations "u" > "you" The reason is that errors draw attention away from the arguments to the form of expression. It also lowers credibility. People think that if you don't care enough to spell out "u" then they wonder if you have given a careful look at the debate subject.

In his kind of debate, a practical rather than abstractly philosophical debate, you should find numbers to support your argument. How many people are you claiming to be harmed, and by how much? Also find some news story examples to illustrate the claimed harm.

You also should add credibility to you arguments by quoting credible people who agree with you. Academics studies are good, but also community leaders or elected officials. You don't want to leave the impression that you are the only person who holds your opinion.

I tried a web search with "problems foreign direct investment India" and it produced a lot of good reference material to use in the debate. Don't hesitate to search long phrases. If someone says something well, quote them rather than rephrase what they are saying. Always give the web link to the source.

Check out the forum threads and for more tips.

Sorry, I reversed Pro and Con in my comment. Don't ever initiate as Con. Never.

A forfeit is not an automatic win. It wins only the conduct category, and then only if the opponent had no offsetting conduct violation. Con made no rebuttals in the final round, so gained no advantage in the arguments from Pro's forfeit.

Reasons for voting decision: A poor debate. Con had no data supporting his contention, so he failed to meet his burden of proof. Pro argued the effect on the US, which is irrelevant. forfeit loses conduct. Poor S&G on both sides, a tie.
