Another debate idea:

There is a big push to eliminate global poverty. One of the more recent ideas is micro-credit, which earned a micro-credit pioneer (Muhammad Yunas) a Nobel Peace Prize in 2006. Yunas believes that micro-credit can work anywhere (third-world and urban areas) and giving credit to the poor will pull them out of poverty.

Do you agree with this? Would it work in New York, Detroit, New Orleans? Should we eliminate poverty in the first place? Can micro-credit loans achieve such a feat?

1)Yes Skinny models should be banned since the majority of people who would buy the clothes the designers are making don't fit into a size 1

2)The writers deserve more than what they're given for writing the material they write and doing on the modest sallaries they do it on.

3)We ban japan and we lose out on a huge market that has given us alot of the major products they provide effectively crippling ourselves
