  1. The problem of brain drain. Is it actually a problem or is it beneficial ?

  11. Are monopolies based on free trade bad for consumers?

    Ive been looking into Rockefellers life and what he did with standard oil. His process of helping the Railroads, Barrel makers, pipelines and shippers lead to drastically lower prices for Karosene. So what i want to know is are monopolies really bad for consumers if the marked is open and free? Or, is the label of a monopoly a boogie man used by the government to limit real competition?

  12. Would we be better off with more "Open" immigration?

    Should the United states as a rule push for more closed borders where people cant come in to find work? Or, are we better off with an open system where by people can enter the country and find a job.

  15. Please explain the broken window fallacy and how it can be used to explain the hidden costs of price fixing, minimum wages, and inflation.

    I think it is a good idea to remind people to look beyond the impact of those immediately affected by a specific government policy. It is easy to see employment in an industry that is protected by tariffs. However, it is not easy to see how that impacts job creation in other industries, government revenues, wages, productivity, and standards of living (for instance).

  17. Should labor be allowed to move across international borders just as freely as capital does?

    Would we all enjoy relatively more or less prosperity if labor (workers) were allowed to move freely across international borders just like capital does?

  20. Why does knowledge have increasing returns?

    Since you've started by talking about trade and the division of labor, a discussion of knowledge's effects on labor productivity would be relevant. For example, why does LeBron James play basketball better if there are other good players on his team? (Example stolen from Bill Easterly's explanation of complementarity and skill matching in Elusive Quest for Growth.)
