(SSC) Beware the man of one study: summary of the 'minimum wage effects on employment' case study
lang
Back
There's overwhelming evidence on both sides even with meta-analyses, open letters by economists and economists surveys.
The funnel plot is assymetrical, so probably publication bias on the conservative (opposing minimum wage raise) side.
Anyway the effects probably depend a lot on the context.

(SSC) Summary of "Rule thinkers in, not out"
lang
Back
We should accept individuals who can come up with at least some brilliant ideas, not reject individuals who are wrong somewhere.

Because coming up with new ideas is much harder than evaluating ideas

(SSC) summary of Creationism, Unchallenged
lang
Back
the 2000's were the decade of fierce media opposition to Creationism. Now it's ignored. And it performs just as well, so maybe leaving things like this unchallenged is okay.
Front
(SSC) Lizardman's constant is 4%: summary
lang
Back
A number of people will answer bullshit to surveys for fun, or to promote their cause (example: a survey saying global warming deniers were also believers in all sorts of bullshit, filled mainly by people from pro-science websites (and so enough of them wanted to make the climate change deniers look bad)).
Front
(SSC) Revenge as charitable act: summary
lang
Back
revenge can sometimes be seen as self-sacrifice for the greater good, to punish bad behavior.
Front
(SSC) summary of "Asymmetric weapons gone bad"
lang
Back
even though infinite resources of time, intelligence, and debate should lead us to the truth, it doesn't mean the curve has to be monotonous.

In some circumstances, the more we think about / debate something, the more wrong we are (until a certain point which we may not have reached).

e.g. socialism in the early 20th century. It seemed so obviously the right thing to do.
