The minimum wage debate is a HUGE issue in the USA. Let’s go into detail about each principle point and even discuss my own personal opinion on the topic!
Economy: Life, Liberty, and Money
Everything about the Economy
Our economy articles have two major themes: major economic updates and research analysis.
One of the main things we want to accomplish with this section is to expand the general interest in economics. The economy is such a central part of everyone’s everyday life, but many ignore it. We believe this is a pinnacle reason politics and culture have degraded. If a person does not understand finances, they cannot understand politics. The economy is the single most important figure in every government. Without a good working knowledge of how it works, we can make no progress in political discourse.
Economic updates include occasional update articles on the state of the economy in the US. Normally we’ll toss in some things happening around the world as their own separate articles if there is enough interest.
Research analysis articles incorporate the latest research and my personal philosophy to find interesting insights into society and human behavior. With the addition of some game theory elements, we can find some interesting outcomes and uncover why so much “science” in the research community is garbage.
If you’re just starting out, take a quick look at my 46 Stupid Ways The Government Spends Your Tax Money article. It will help give you an idea of where our economy articles stem from. If you’re ready to dive straight into research, a popular starting article is my answer to the question: Is Uncle Sam Earning Interest on Study Loans? and Free Trade: Why It Is Bad for All of Us
This $2 trillion COVID-19 bill in the senate is pure insanity. Do they really think socialism will fix the economy they forcibly shut down?

A taxpayer funded resource is not free. Nothing is for free. This is an important distinction in the culture fight.
The stock market is tanking in response to the coronavirus COVID-19. This isn’t the first time stocks have crashed in relation to a viral pandemic.
Left leaning politicians always promise more free stuff. What they never promise is a cost analysis. Democrats cost too much!
There’s a common argument that goes like “if you don’t like socialism then reject your social security benefits”. I discuss why this is a stupid argument.
Democrat politicians want to expand social security. Do they realize that social security is a Ponzi scheme that is set up in the same way as the Titanic? Of course they do. They don’t care. They just want to bribe votes.
We’ve documented all the reasons why the American healthcare system is a complete disaster. Is it beyond saving at this point?
Did you know that state and local government spend most of their money on welfare? Combined with the federal government, they spend over $1 trillion a year. Tax money hard at work, supporting handouts.
There is a new trend to call many forms of debt as “good debt”. Too bad that’s just another ploy to get people to spend money they don’t have.
