I'm currently on the Post 9/11 GI bill. It's not going to cover all four years.

I'm on the"post 9/11" G.I. Bill, its paying for any college I want in the state. It doesn't cover technical schools, so maybe thats the problem for you? I'm covered as long as i go to school. They pay for my classes, i pay for supplies and books.

Do you not understand the point I'm trying to make? A lot of people who are in minimum wage jobs are not fucking there because they want to be, they are there because they have no other jobs to get. They are forced into either living off welfare, or to have a minimum wage job, and it's more often then not better than welfare. And if they didn't work for the "big evil corporations" they would have a nil source of income you nitwit.

There are no jobs for you because you have no skills that are valuable. There are so many jobs out there it would make your fucking head spin. The catch is, they aren't unskilled jobs, which are the types of jobs that are drying up. If you have no skills, then it should come as no surprise that you have no money.

Sure nobody needs to work a 7.50 job if they're ambitious and actually go find a better job, but most other jobs available would be around the $10 mark, which is still quite hard to live on full time. Bumping minimum wage to $10 would(or should at the very least) make other companies raise their wages to stay competitive as well. The cost to offset these raises is not an extreme, and it would actually be very miniscule and hardly noticable. Obviously this depends on the companies not being greedy, but it's all possible.
#327 - olafthebard (02/02/2014) [-]
You are quite stupid if you really think it's as easy as you that... A lot of people don't have the time or ability to go and save up money that they need to spend on basic needs such as food, water, and rent, and what it takes to keep their family from being fucked over. Sure, what you say might work for single people, but a majority of minimum wage workers have families to provide for.

And who's fault is that? If you decide to have children, despite not being able to pay for them, then that's your own damn fault and you only have yourself to blame. I would never in a million years have children if I was working at fucking McDonalds.

Inflation is nothing more than the government issuing more money, and it is a tax. It's a tax on everything from wages to savings, and it attacks most viciously those who are the last to received the influx of new money. A good currency must be durable, homogeneous, divisible, and limited. This is why gold is so popular, but my problems with gold is that by making gold a currency, we are taking it out of practical use by keeping it in vaults and we never know when a large influx of gold might arise from the earth or when it can be synthesized. The bitcoin matches all criteria except one: durable. It's not backed by the government, so there's no gun to protect it from destruction.

I understand your allusion to the Dutch tulips in terms of speculation. I agree, speculation can turn sour. However, tulip bulbs are poor currency. The promise of bitcoin that makes it so valuable is that allegedly no more will be produced. Thus, we will have a durable and rare form of currency if it can reach general acceptance, which it may not. The important idea to combat is inflation, which is a vicious tax by the government that must be stopped for the sake of economic success.
#50 - kingpongthedon (02/02/2014) [-]
Inflation occurs naturally, it has very little to do with government intervention. In fact, government intervention slows the rate of inflation significantly. Here's a brief overview of how it works:

Farmer A needs to make more money to sustain his farm so he charges Baker B more for wheat flour than he did last year. In turn, Baker B must increase the prices he charges Consumer C for a muffin. Consumer C demands higher wages from Employer D to continue buying those life-sustaining muffins. Employer D begins charging more for the tractors he produces to pay for Consumer C's increased wages. Farmer A needs to make more money to sustain his farm...

On the other hand, Farmer A needs to make more money to sustain his farm. Government G recognizes that Farmer A provides an invaluable product and subsidize his farm using taxes collected from the people that was already in existence. Government G has had the power to create money stripped from them to prevent hyperinflation. This power is exclusively held by Federal Reserve F, an independent entity. Federal Reserve F creates (and destroys) money to account for increasing populations, changes in effective power of currency, technological advancements, and other factors to maintain a reasonable rate of inevitable inflation.

A good currency cannot be tied to it's physical value as these are prone to wild fluctuations, no matter how constant the supply is. It's value needs to be determined entirely by it's purchasing power. This essential requirement eliminates all tangible goods. Bitcoins are no different than any other fiat currency. In fact, they are currently subject to much more erratic fluctuations than any other recognized currency, with the exception of Zimbabwe's.

TLDR: Inflation is inevitable and a stable currency needs independent oversight, something Bitcoin and tangible goods absolutely do not have. Euros and American Dollars are by far the most stable effective currencies at the time.
#98 - madcoww (02/02/2014) [-]
I'm sorry, but your concept of inflation is flawed. In your example, you assert that the cost of production of wheat goes up, so the farmer must charge more in order to avoid operating at a loss. When supply goes down, cost goes up and demand goes down. But let's say demand stay the same because people really want muffins in particular instead of switching to a more affordable grain like would normally happen. If so, the stock value of grain would go up, which would inspire more people to go into the wheat production industry. Thus, competition goes up, and the only business that can afford to survive are not the ones who get their profits by charging more (since they will lose customers) but rather by those who are the most efficient/productive and can afford to charge the least amount possible.

If people truly want wheat, they will spend more of their paycheck for it and therefore spend less on other things. These other things will need to either charge less or go out of business. These are the natural and good workings of a free market. Thus, the commodity wheat has increased in value just as much as everything else has decreased in value. This is not inflation. Inflation is a general rising of prices, which is ONLY possible through a surplus of money, which can ONLY be caused by the issuance of more money.
#114 - kingpongthedon (02/02/2014) [-]
Inflation is the decrease of the purchasing power of money. I assure you, it's not flawed. It's the basis of Modern Economics. What you said is absolutely true in a Classical Economics sense, however it's been heavily modified. It's still the basis of economic policy, much in the same way Newtonian mechanics dictates the events of our day-to-day life, but when it comes to large markets it falls apart.

Furthermore, supply and demand isn't nearly as effective at regulating prices for necessary goods, like staple foods or medical care, as people will buy them regardless of the cost. It also doesn't work well with massive projects, things like building infrastructure and again, farming. Few people have the capital necessary, so an oligopoly is inevitable without government assistance. Think about how few phone and car companies there are. It also doesn't work well with low/no-income purchasers. They don't buy things they want, only what they need. Chances are the business is dependent on their labor, workers have become increasingly specialized since Paine, this has given laborers more leverage to ask for increased wages. Plus, all good businesses accept this as a fact of life and realize that if they don't fall in line with economic trends then they will be out of business in a short time. As long as they have a new product that can keep up with the trends, they'll be just fine. This is the premise of the price/wage spiral.

There's also supply shock inflation. Classical Economics typically assumes there's a near unlimited supply of resources and as long as somebody is willing, they can get it. This is simply not true. Prime examples are arable land and oil deposits. Prices have to rise to account for this. Since they are so widely used in our society, the increase in their costs will cause a ripple effect through almost all goods.

There's a ton of other natural causes of inflation, but these are by far the most powerful.

I only noticed those points after looking at it several times.
