Where we left off:
Me: Is it your suggestion that because I've said a minimum wage is a bad idea that I am in favor of slavery?
I'll bet that you can't read this column and then tell me that a minimum wage is a good idea: http://www.jewishworldreview.com/cols/williams032305.asp

Walter Williams? Lol....looks like we got a Libertarian in the house...
News Flash: economic growth and affluence don't automatically result in happiness and increased quality of life.
Here's one that's less "trickle-down-centric", grounded in reality, and acknowledges that there is indeed [shutter] a social contract: http://definepoverty.com/2010/
Ironically, it arrives at the same conclusion albeit through entirely different means. Of course what we're talking about is a structural problem that can't be solved by soundbites from competing economic world views, yours from tinfoil hat land, mine from the planet Earth.
...then again, if poor people really need financial assistance they can always follow Williams advice and sell their organs...to buy guns, of course.
Stay tuned for my rebuttal to his link.
