  • Does anyone know why Obama decided to run for president this year?

    He is a first term senator and is only in his 40's, so he had lots of time to get more experience and give himself a better chance of winning. Was he pushed forward as a stop Hillary movement in the Democratic party? If so, who was behind it?

  • Are your biases about race and nationality actually based more on language than other factors.?

    Please do not claim not to have any biases, we all do. Could we solve many of our social problems if schools offered instruction that made our spoken language uniform erasing regional and national accents. Studies have shown that babies prefer to eat foods offered to them by a native speaker compared to a speaker of a foreign language. And... show more
    Please do not claim not to have any biases, we all do. Could we solve many of our social problems if schools offered instruction that made our spoken language uniform erasing regional and national accents. Studies have shown that babies prefer to eat foods offered to them by a native speaker compared to a speaker of a foreign language. And older children say that they want to be friends with someone who speaks in their native accent.' Accents and vernacular, far more than race, seem to influence the people we like. 'Children would rather be friends with someone who is from a different race and speaks with a native accent versus somebody who is their own race but speaks with a foreign accent.'

    Someone reciently commented in an answer about the failure of wages to keep up with productivity growth. "Most of the gains are a result of new machinery/technologies, which were provided from investments by the capital providers (ie, the owners). Why is it that you think that workers should benefit from improvements that they have had no impact on? SHOULD they get paid more for pushing a button instead of manually performing a task?" I was surprised by this and wonder if this is now a common point of view. According to classic economic theory wages are determined by the marginal product of labor, that is the extra value of the last worker hired. Increases in productivity have alway be the result of of "new machinery/technologies, which were provided from investments by the capital".

  • Who pays the tax on corporations? The reduced tax rate on capital gains and dividens is usually justified by?

    claiming that stockholders have already been been taxed at the corporate level. The Fair Tax advocates claim that removing the tax will reduce retail prices, that implies that consumers are now paying the tax. If the tax on corporate profits were reduced to zero, and capital gains and dividends were taxed at 35% would retail prices fall.
