Click on Raising American Wages … By Raising American Wages for a well-researched, well-thought-out article by Ron Unz, publisher of The American Conservative, on the case for a higher minimum wage, and why this would do more for the U.S. economy than another stimulus spending package, another round of tax cuts or getting more people into higher education.   Indeed, he makes the case that a higher minimum wage would decrease the demand for higher education, and that this would be a good thing.

I first noticed Ron Unz when I read his excellent articles on bias in Ivy League college admissions and the myth of meritocracy.  Click on Ron Unz – Writings and Perspectives | Views, Opinions and Notes for more of his writings.
