    : I read on another site a while back that it was logical to start every worker on a new job at $50,000 a year, because it would cause minimum wage to rise automatically to $50 per hour. Longtime employee's wages would also be adjusted upward. They acknowledged that a loaf of bread would probably cost $15, but that wouldn't matter, because everyone would have the money to pay for it! I recall thinking that sounded a lot like hyperinflation to me, but maybe I wasn't totally grasping the concept? :

    No it doesn't; it Only means those of the opposing view should get both a clue and a Cause.

    You don't like the concept of employment at will?

    What the heck are you talking about?

    You said UNemployment compensation at will.

    Not a thing about at will employment.

    Do you even have a clue or a Cause regarding the concept of employment at will?

    Doesn't matter, since we aren't talking about that. And why the **** are you capitalizing Cause?

    Nevermind...

    We are talking about how you think "solving simple poverty" (what, there's a complex version?) is doable via the method of allowing "unemployment compensation on an at-will basis".

    Until you explain what the heck that means, or at the least what you INTENDED it to mean, I will not entertain further points of discussion.

    I thought it was self-evident that it was about the concept of employment at will, and Individual Liberty in modern and Capital economic times. Are you a socialist?

    It should be as simple as a form of full employment of resources in our Institution of money based markets. Simply correcting for Capitalism's laziness regarding solving structural forms of unemployment for free, merely by using sufficient Socialism, to bail out Capitalism, like usual. The legal and physical infrastructure already exists in our republic and could be better utilized, in order for supply side economics to supply us with better governance at lower cost in any rule-of-law State.

    It could be as simple as a form of minimum wage that simply pays labor to pursue other opportunity costs, than have to compete in our markets for labor within our Institution of money based markets if it is not in their best interest.

    You've got a very odd definition of "self-evident" in your head, apparently.

    Because I know for damn sure I didn't think of ANY part of that after your statement. Hell I'm not even sure you said anything just now. There's a bunch of words strung together, sure, but they don't really fit very well.

    What part of the concept of employment at will is too difficult for you to understand?

    At will employment is generally described as follows: "any hiring is presumed to be 'at will'; that is, the employer is free to discharge individuals 'for good cause, or bad cause, or no cause at all,' and the employee is equally free to quit, strike, or otherwise cease work."

    Source: At-will employment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Nothing.

    But you weren't talking about at-will employment. You specifically said "unemployment compensation at-will"...

    That's...not even close to the same thing.
