Your ideas were refuted months ago? (sorry, couldn't resist replying with a FD-style question...)

But you didn't refute anything, now or months ago.

You merely claimed "real jobs"† are private sector jobs, and you discounted the value of work which the local community wants done, even if the work is not part of the market economy.†

On the contrary, you didn't refute anything. 

What part of "the value of work the community wants done" don't you understand?

The minimum wage is already too high. How much is unskilled labor really worth?

This is why we need an increase in the minimum wage.† So people can catch up to inflation.† †Sad


So the price of goods and services go up to pay for the wage rise ... then a demand for higher wages follows to pay for the price increases ... then the prices go up to pay for the wage rise ...

Off we go on the inflationary spiral.

Exactly right!!

We donít need more money.

We need our taxes spent for us rather than on failing businesses!

We need public servants sacked and held accountable for the millions they waste on poor decisions rather than be protected!

We also need a government with a backbone to to crack down on companies ripping us all off!

Never going to happen so long as brown paper bags full of coin are constantly delivered to our politicians!

Id suggest honestly but itís a almost a election year so Iím dreaming.

From my experience small business is completely going under.

Australia is broken from the covid 19 costs to taxpayers.

I have always thought Iíd like visiting Argentina.

Now I can set at home and wait to see the same society.

The thing I find funny, ha, ha, is our politicians have voted themselves some the highest wages o the world!

While at the same time failing our people totally?

TAFE is certainly part of the solution. It was defunded by small government/low tax ideology, but at last Labor is funding it again.

You low tax ideologues think low taxes mean greater productivity, but the TAFE experience over the last decade and more has shown otherwise.

Bobby mentioned taxing fossil fuels, another source of government revenue.

Nah, you are all low tax, personal responsibility losers.

The happiest peple in† the world live under high-tax regimes.

https://www.financialexpress.com/policy/economy-those-who-pay-higher-tax-are-hap...

World Happiness Report 2018: Those who pay higher tax are happier! Donít believe us, hereís the proof

Eminent social-scientist Benjamin Radcliff has drawn a parallel between happiness and tax rates, saying that ďhigher levels of taxation suggest higher levels of satisfaction with lifeĒ, and hence more happiness. And there are other social scientists too who contend the same.16 Mar 2018

Meanwhile, heterodox economists are offering a zero tax† (which you crave for),† zero interest rate, zero inflation, full employment economy, but you need to do your own research on that topic.

That is as stupid as you are, parrot.

Er...in a choice beteween Rafcliffe and you...no contest.

And a choice between orthodox Neoclassical/Friedmanite economists,  and heterodox economists who know poverty is a political choice - again no contest.

Oh no  - not Milton Friedman's obsolete ideas - still beloved by flat-earth mainstrean economists - based on fixed exchange rates and the gold standard.
