    And yes, I know about profit and demand. But paying a living wage isn't contrary to that. It's just another lie used to get workers to accept poverty. Again, read some history.

    Btw it isn't the government. If the government ran it, there would be even lower wages. See China. It is people, citizens, workers using government as the tool to effect change. Read history.
    The definition for responsibility is an individual definition for it means something differently to each individual. You seem to use it a lot as if it has a definite definition just like living wage. What you do is impose your own standards on everyone else and judge everyone else by your standards. Life doesn't work that way.

    You give people so little credit. It is up to the individual not the business owner to determine their own wage. If the worker doesn't want to work for the wage, then why take it. Millions today aren't. Amazing how you support govt. intervention into the private sector when you believe it suits your position. I have read history and unfortunately we are doomed to repeat it thanks to people like you.

    There's this book. It's call a dictionary. It actually has definitions of words. The minute a word only means what we want it to mean, the word becomes useless and we should stop using it.

    As for giving people credit, we have history. We can see what people have done and be able to predict what they will do. There was an economic advantage to having slaves. It powered the use of them. So it is in the work place. It has to often less to do with supply and demand as it does with how cheap can I get away with. Read history.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Aw, yes, black and white when it comes to human behavior and activity, something you have shown no ability to understand. There is a general definition for responsibility but that definition varies by individual as all people don't have the same responsibility just like not all people find a minimum wage not to be a living wage.

    As for giving people credit, we have history. We can see what people have done and be able to predict what they will do. There was an economic advantage to having slaves. It powered the use of them. So it is in the work place. It has to often less to do with supply and demand as it does with how cheap can I get away with. Read history.
    Read it and lived it. Employed thousands of people and had a personal interface with most of them. You can give an educated guess as to what people will do but never be certain. Your problem is you believe an educated guess is precise. When it comes to people it isn't.

    You seem to have come to the belief that business individuals are in business to employ people. Where did you come up with that? A business owner is in business to make a profit for themselves and their family. Workers are a requirement for most businesses but as we have seen in North Dakota supply and demand plays a much bigger role in wages than you will ever admit. All businesses are going to try and get labor for as cheaply as possible. The decision whether or not to take the job is the individuals. Businesses in North Dakota aren't finding it easy to find cheap labor because of greater demand than supply. That is what happens when you unleash the American spirit and incentive.

    You just aren't the expert you think you are, too much book "learnin" and so little street smarts.

    Your answers show no understanding of history. No street smarts either.

    And your opinion is noted just like your very poor credibility.

    Yep, that was hilarious just like you believing we pay debt service on inflation driven numbers and also believe SS and Medicare aren't on budget. Now that would be funny if it weren't so sad.

    So lets just re do everything to fit your tableaux that fits an ideology. Yoyr issue is with SS seeing that they are on record in saying they are off budget. I'm sure were that a problem various agencies and people would set them straight
