The administration has proposed raising the federal minimum wage as a means of stimulating the economy. I happen to live in the state that boasts both the highest minimum wage and the highest job growth in the country. In fact, there is a lot of support in Seattle to push that minimum wage even higher, to $15/hour. According to Venture Capitalist Nick Hanauer, "A higher minimum wage is a very simple and elegant solution to the death spiral of falling demand that is the signature feature of our economy." Not to mention just, compassionate, and the all-around Right Thing To Do.
Of course, not everyone is on board. The Manosphere's own resident economist, Captain Capitalism, proposes an even simpler and more elegant solution: "I have said before, and I am 100% sincere about this, that if women were to lose weight in America, that would increase economic production... because hot chicks incentive [sic] men... And men are the primary producers and innovators of society."
Aaron Clarey, is the "super awesome economic genius" behind Captain Capitalism. His blog represents "some of the finest economic research and philosophy." He lives in Minneapolis, which he claims is "a leftist shit hole." I believe he attended community college at some point.
