At my suggestion, Intelligence Squared is hosting a debate on the motion: Abolish The Minimum Wage. At a time when President Obama is proposing to increase it, I thought it might be useful to go back to first principles and explore whether the minimum wage is good policy in the first place. The debaters are top-notch, and the program promises to be very lively.
Intelligence Squared debates are usually held in New York City, but this one will be in Washington, DC, at the Burke Theater at the U.S. Navy Memorial, 701 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW. Wednesday, April 3. Reception, 4:30-5:15pm; Debate, 5:30-7:00pm.
