    formal class in either macro or micro economics, but has been tutored by dad since she first crawled out of the womb, was all over this issue today. she (correctly) pointed out that, by raising the minimum wage, money would be pumped into the economy, creating the "ripple" effect so beloved by us keynsian economists. not only would jobs not be lost, that "ripple" would increase employment, by increasing demand. thus has it ever been, thus will it ever be.
