The minimum wage.
Why can’t people comprehend that the minimum wage is the most naive policy against human liberty and economics ever pushed forth by politicians? There is practically no benefit, to the existence of the minimum wage. It’s only real benefit is that of a placebo effect for those who support it as a policy, or political support for politicians.
But the idea that limiting what people can offer for their labor, work or service will somehow better their lives, is just absolutely insane to me.
Realistically in the name of political alliances, I’d only support a minimum wage which is so far divorced from what 99% of people are willing to work for. So as to give the placebo to those who want it and to minimize the damage. In an ideal world however, the minimum wage shouldn’t exist. In our current world the existence of such a policy only gives more ugly precedence for such policy and confuses the morality of those who aren’t wiser to the issue of infringing upon liberty.
