I have never done a team debate before and it sounds interesting. Is anyone else interested in participating in a team debate?

I could never imagine why...

But I'm not sure about that. There are a few people in the economics forum recently who have challenged me. Granted, the bravado they exuded in the absence of any knowledge belied their confidence.

Resolve: the U.S. Should lower the minimum wage. You two would be pro? What do you say?

I know who your potential teammate is, lol. And, given that, I'd want to clarify the resolution to -- especially since "lowering" the MW isn't exactly my or 16k's position:

Resolved: The minimum wage is economically beneficial

How about that?

I have never done a team debate before and it sounds interesting. Is anyone else interested in participating in a team debate?

What topics would you want to debate?

MW m8

Let's do it!

MW?

^ what 16k said. Is that something you'd be interested in debating?

Sure. Just need a teammate.

Awesome; just let us know when you can.

It seems many are intimidated by the two of you specifically in economics haha

I could never imagine why...

But I'm not sure about that. There are a few people in the economics forum recently who have challenged me. Granted, the bravado they exuded in the absence of any knowledge belied their confidence.

Perhaps nobody has confidence in me haha.

I have a potential teammate...

Resolve: the U.S. Should lower the minimum wage. You two would be pro? What do you say?

I know who your potential teammate is, lol. And, given that, I'd want to clarify the resolution to -- especially since "lowering" the MW isn't exactly my or 16k's position:

Resolved: The minimum wage is economically beneficial

How about that?

I'm ok with that, depends on him then.

Is it Zaradi? Lol. He told me he isn't interested in debating economics, but obviously 16k and I don't want to tilt the debate to philosophy.

Nope, that's not him.

Ah, okay.
