Where aspiring authors and idiots alike get together, share our books, critique - and do all that stuff that friends shouldn't have friends do. #1 nail in the coffin for self-publishing authors: having their friends read their books and then thinking 'I'm so smart, my book is the best!' because the friends are too nice to say "this sucks." Instead, these poor obligated friend can say, "You know what! I have the perfect place for you . . . go to Scribophile."

    Now - you being on debate politics - I wager that most of us are here to learn. It's not your run of the mill site where all manner of vitriol is spewed forth. We're a cut above debate dungeons and a notch below heaven.

    Some are here to vent - but most people around here are not here JUST for that.
    Hugely valuable advice! Thanks so much. I'm writing a book myself and will give it a try.

    The more I think about it, the more I think my friend hand no interest in my feedback. I'm just worried now that this book will trigger a backlash he has no idea he'll be bringing upon himself. He'll probably then convince himself he's being persecuted "for telling the truth" when most of the "truth" in his book are simply his "true" opinions.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    I have multiple pieces of paper on my wall and work experience to state otherwise.

    those pieces of paper on the wall tell us what, exactly about your knowledge of economics, finance or public policy
    ditto for your work experience
    would be different to actually see your posts evidencing that you have engaged in debate instead of mindless/meaningless posts (such as the one above); i look forward to the change

    Feel free to look around. There are lots of threads where I drop economic knowledge on people. Walmart, minimum wage, corporations, etc. threads. Plenty abound.

    and those pieces of paper on the wall, and that work experience, exactly what do they tell us about your knowledge of economics ... or was that simply more clutter within your posted presentation

    Okay, so a formal education in economics and professional experience doesn't hold the merit of...a bunch of liberal bullcrap, hopes, wishes, and screams of "fair"?

    Think what you want to think. Maybe you can continue par for the course with telling us how things "should" be. That usually belies intelligence.

    yes, because changing things for the better is so much worse that maintaining the status quo ante [/sarcasm for those requiring the hint]

    go to page 22 of this 2013 international happiness index, breakout what you learned in school and on the job and share with us what you find. what i find is that those nations with a strong capitalistic economy with a similarly strong social safety net fared best
    http://unsdsn.org/files/2013/09/Worl...013_online.pdf

    then it does appear that socialism - to some significant extent - does contribute to the happiness of a nations citizens
