    When it comes to the minimum wage, it would show why it isn't necessarily the greatest idea.

    I'm not asking you to do anything for me. I'm asking you to refer to the place where you see your information.

    Okay, and how does increasing the minimum wage fix that?

    I've been totally wasting my time on these darn forums!
    Only if it was peer reviewed, as all books, journals and articles on economics are.

    What distinguishable qualifications do you have that would demonstrate your standards of quality, performance and credibility associated with the peer review process, aside from wasting your time on these 'darn forums?'

    Countries with a higher minimum wage (government mandated, or socially mandated) tend to be richer countries, and countries with no min wage or a very low min wage tend to be very poor. At least that's what I see when I look at charts and comparisons.

    Do you see something that I'm not seeing?

I sold my final interest a few years back, and now I own a company that manufactures products sold in every state, and in other parts of the world. My experience is not only national, but global.

    What is your experience?
    No, that doesn't do it. You are not doing what you said you do, and don't have experience running a national economy. Nor do I. Sure, I have a small company. Sell nationally. But that doesn't mean I run a national economy. So, you failed.

    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.

    Move all wages, including minimum wages to keep up with inflation. More people will spend money. More spending means more business. This helps everyone.

    No, it wasn't. It was drafted to handle the issue of unemployment and poverty

    I'll add that to the list of things you don't see.
