About This File
Economic growth bad. Pretty self-explanatory.
This argument has seen a resurgence in popularity in the last few years, playing a big part in some high-stakes rounds in both high school and college, including the 2010 TOC and the 2011 NDT final rounds. This argument is particularly useful on this year's space topic because everyone and their grandma has an econ advantage.
This file has all the standard cards that you'll need to win the growth bad debate, including a lot of cards you won't find in any camp file, including updated evidence from 2011. The shell is short so you can keep your options in the 1NC and expand on it later. This argument can also be used on the aff with affirmatives that don't claim econ advantages, but make sure it doesn't contradict with other claims you are making. This file has a proven track record on both the high school and college circuits.
I've included a paper version along with a paperless version.
As with my other files, if you buy my file I will help you out if you run into an argument you need help developing answers to.
At only $7, the price is pretty reasonable for an argument that can be used irregardless of topic for the rest of your career.
PM if you have any questions.
