    C'mon Grasshopper -- you can do better than this
    Do you have literally any data that shows raising minimum wage is good for the macro?

    US citizens donated $410B to charity last year, which is more money than many countries collect in taxes every year

    Yes, other than substantive contributions to conversations about free markets, Social Security, welfare reform, wages, and the nature of the social science of economics, leftists have contributed nothing to this thread. I swear, the only thing you hate worse than people not responding to you is people substantively responding to you.

    More that nobody seems to respond to any data.

    It seems that you either

    1. Disagree with what the data shows, and thus would explain why, or

    2. Agree with the data and thus change your mind on some positions, which would seem to make sense to post about


    I was surprised we couldn't get a discussion on the Seattle tax reversal, for example

    Leftists from here have been discussing economics with you for a decade dating back to scout.

    Your positions dont change, so why would we keep the cycle going? This thread is just an extension of past conversations we've had with you.

    Also I recall the first 2 pages being an argument about the semantics of whether economics is political or not.

    But not many contributions to economic issues

    This thread is meant to show real world examples of arguments we've had... Or data.

    Not theory

    Do you support a 90% corporate tax rate?

    As an fyi, the corporate tax rate was never close to 90% under Eisenhower.

    This is what is known as fake news. I'm guessing Julio will correct you any.minute
