The policy of Free Trade is still in debate due to the questionable benefit for each side. This debate doesnâ€™t try to limit the effect of free trade to developing or third world country .It will however argue that poorer countries, in comparison to their trading partners, will suffer due to the â
Income disparity between the rich and poor, which harasses most government in the world, is getting bigger and bigger. According to an official report that in China 0.4% rich people get control of 70% of wealth. In the U.S. the top one fifth of the population possesses almost two thirds of social we
The inheritance tax is a tax that has never achieved to reach one of its main goals - reduce income inequality. Its effect nowadays on budgets of countries is negligible. Instead, the tax infringes individual rights to personal property and free will. We believe that the reasons to keep the tax pres
We live in the post-communist and post-Watergate era and, most of all, on a corruption market. Anywhere in this world thereâ€™ll be both supply and demand on this market. Corruption and bribery will never be eradicated, as financial self-improvement and the power dynamics resulting from loca
Before moving onto our substantives, we first want to make it clear what this debate is about. Deregulation and tax cuts should be embraced to lead the world OUT OF economic crisis, the motion says. This debate is NOT about what the causes of the economic crisis were and how they should be solved. T
Something that should be crystal-clear to this generation is that natural resources are limited and precious, and need to be carefully managed. The way natural resources are currently being extracted has led to what is known as the â€śResource Curseâ€ť â€“ serious harms to resource-rich nations. It
With pension time bombs sprouting across liberal democracies and more and more pensioners being brought below the poverty line this house would privatize pensions. This proposition supports a gradual phasing out of government pensions to be accompanied with a regulatory framework to ensure fair comp
Governments all over the world try and set the minimum price at which cotton grown in their country can be sold. Both the United States and the European Union have policies which support their cotton producers by ensuring them a particular price at which their cotton will be bought as part of their
Young students eager to better themselves as people are facing crippling debts after they leave university unless they are born of a very wealthy family. This ensures that the wealth stays with the families who have always had it. Worse still is the number of young people denied the chance of univer
Upon your death, whether you have a will or not, some one needs to distribute your property on your behalf. There are many statutory rules for these people to follow, especially if there is no will for the estate. But are these rules necessary? Do they just make bereavement even harder for the loved
If you die and you have not made a will, you will be deemed as dying 'intestate'. Your property will be distributed in accordance with the Administration of Estates Act 1925 ('AEA'). This debate looks into the provisions within this act and assesses whether or not the distribution provided for is fa
Public transport is always quite low down the list of priorities for any government. Roads and cars took precedence from the 1960s onwards over any form of public transport and the old public transport infrastructure of trams and trains was dismantled. But now that the roads have filled up and we ar
The UK has been a member of the European Community since 1973, and makes sizable financial contributions to the EUâ€™s funds. Is this investment worth it? Or are we being financially hurt for little gain?
Ultimately one of the greatest sources of economic and social inequality in modern society is money passed from parents to children. I would therefore suggest that the state confiscates (or taxes if you prefer the term) all the money passed on by anybody born in the UK when they die.
In order to create a valid will you have to comply with formalities contained in the Wills Act 1837. The Government wants to encourage us to make such wills in the interest of certainty (and as it makes inheritance tax more transparent so that the HMRC know what they can expect!). If they want to en
Communism has lost the conflict of ideologies. All that remains is capitalism, and a failing capitalism at that. While the world is in recession the investment banks take advantage to continue paying immense bonuses despite having been bailed out only a few months earlier. When the pay of workers is
