Economics 101. And Wikipedia and the Commons need more charts and graphs[edit]

Return to top. See: US map from the Department of Labor. Scroll over states on that map to see exact minimum wage by state. Or see list here.

I support a neutral point of view (en:WP:NPOV) in Wikipedia articles.

Running an economy is simple. The free market concentrates wealth. So progressive taxation is a necessity. Along with a living minimum wage. If money is constantly recycled, then people have money to spend, the economy works, and unemployment is low. Also, there is less crime, and less spending for police, courts, and prisons. Handguns are unnecessary. Government spending should be kept to a minimum. So more money goes to individuals to keep the economy running. Exceptions are things such as food stamps, workfare, welfare, family planning, and single-payer universal healthcare. Single-payer universal healthcare is the most efficient. No one should starve or be unhealthy. The planet should not be overpopulated. See related charts and resources:

First chart is for population growth (actual and projected):
