Full resolution: There is sufficient evidence to conclude that redistribution has had a measurable increase in overall welfare.

First round for acceptance only. Usual rules of debate (no semantics, no trolling, et cetera) apply.

I look forward to an enlightening debate.

Money is issued on the authority of law, It doesn't actually belong to the public nor the government, It belongs to the nation, Unless you are in the Eurozone, Then you are just plain out of luck.

A modern nation is rule of law, As opposed to human ruled systems from history, You know, The ones drenched in blood and all, And the rule of law is identified by no one being above the law, Not a cop, Not a judge, Not a senator, Not a president, They are all servants of the law, Like it is King, And much like a king it doesn't actually do anything for itself, It expects all of its servants to, Including improving it, Reviewing it, Testing proposals, Validating policy, Etc.

Ultimately the law is entitled to do with its property and people whatever it wants, And the people are entitled to question it, Make their case, And where weighted, Upheld.

Part of all this is money, And the economy, Unless you are in the Eurozone of course, Then you are really screwed because your law has no authority over your money or your economy, But I'll digress, A healthy economy does indeed need a decent distribution of wealth, That actually stimulates the economy as people spend.

I hear there are 10 economic sectors, At least traditionally, So the question is if all of them need the same policies to do well? That's a big no, What makes them sectors in the first place is the fact they need different things from policy to do well, And these differences are what creates a balance of power in the national economy between those 10 sectors, Unless you are in the Eurozone, Then there is no balance of power, Two sectors are thriving while the other 8 have flatlined, And are being cannibalized by the dominant two.

Not just that but take existing wealth that people are just sitting on, And redistribute that as well. No individual to be allowed to have assets exceeding a million dollars; no higher salary than a million a year and no more than 10 million in a single bank account; multiple accounts will be investigated and shut down, With corruption being punishable by capital punishment by fire, And flesh eating rats. Arise it will; the perfect Communist utopia.

4/5 Scandinavian economies had their GDP drop by a lot from 2014 to 2016.

Change voting period to 1 month, rounds to 3 or 4 (few people read 5 rounds), and change the resolution to: "The US should adapt a redistribution policy akin to the Scandinavian model."
