  • As I believe Professor Friedman would agree, the strength of the individual to negotiate a satisfactory level of compensation and benefits depends on a greater demand for such labor than the available supply. Keeping women out of the workforce in order to keep the wages of men higher has very limited application except in areas where skill level and experience are generally equal. There is also a serious flaw in the idea that "education" yields a greater potential to achieve one's full potential. The more people who are similarly educated the greater the competition for "good, well-paying jobs." The challenge for those who implement public policies is how to correspondingly increase the demand side of the market for labor. Part of the answer is in how government chooses to raise its revenue and what, if any, tax breaks should be built into the system. One example of poor public policy is to offer tax breaks for investment in capital goods rather than a tax credit for every full-time employee.

  • I really take offense to people who equate women as breeding stock or property. I am glad to be in the point in time where we are to be able to work, but still appreciate that we still have not accomplished equal civil rights. I prefer to be educated and determine my own fate. Marry of my own choice, not because I have to depend on someone to care for me.

  • And what was the north's materialistic motivation in freeing the slaves? You explained that foyerbach was a materialist who gave a motivation for Christianity. So what about the north?
