Economics

Total population living in extreme poverty, by world region 1987 to 2015[339]
The total number of people living in extreme absolute poverty globally, by the widely used metric of $1.00/day (in 1990 U.S. dollars) has decreased over the last several decades, but most people surveyed in several countries incorrectly think it has increased or stayed the same.[340]
Monopolists do not try to sell items for the highest possible price, nor do they try to maximize profit per unit, but rather they try to maximize total profit.[341]
For any given production set, there is not a set amount of labor input (a "lump of labor") to produce that output. This fallacy is commonly seen in Luddite and later, related movements as an argument either that automation causes permanent, structural unemployment, or that labor-limiting regulation can decrease unemployment. But, in fact, changes in capital allocation, efficiency, and economies of learning can change the amount of labor input for a given set of production.[342]
Income is not a direct factor in determining credit score in the United States. Rather, credit score is impacted by the amount of unused available credit, which is in turn affected by income.[343] Income is also considered when evaluating creditworthiness more generally.
The US public vastly overestimates the amount spent on foreign aid.[344]
An increase in gross income will never reduce one's post-tax earnings (net income) due to putting one in a higher tax bracket. In every country with tax brackets, they only indicate the marginal tax rate, as opposed to the total income tax rate; only the additional income earned in the higher tax bracket is taxed at the elevated rate.[345] An increase in gross income can reduce one's net income in a welfare cliff, however, when benefits are suddenly withdrawn when passing a certain income threshold.[346]

how telling! You have time to chirp but... somehow... no time to respond to the following, now asked of you at least 3 times - is there a problem, for you? LOL!

What has Singh ever done besides take credit for things the Liberals actually did/do?

You know what they say about arguing with a fool right?

you've got no game - you can't validate the vacuous lies and/or misinforming claims & statements that the conMan Singh made during the campaign... so you chirp! Again, this iteration of the NDP isn't a serious political party. As the NDP insider highlighted, "the ND party isn't a movement, it's a Jagmeet Singh ad campaign"!

Because he's an unapologetic hypocritic.
Why should we?  He'd be crying for days if anyone made fun of the looks of a member of the Liberal Party.

It was a nice break here on the forum.  We should have elections more often.
