Có thật là không ảnh hưởng gì?

điều tra nói rằng: lương tối thiểu tăng "ko ảnh hưởng mấy" đến hoạt động của doanh nghiệp,

thật ra, những DN còn trả lời điều tra là những DN sống sót rồi, ảnh hưởng nặng thì đã die...

trích dẫn hôm nay… is from page 225 of the 5th edition (2015) of Thomas Sowell’s excellent volume, Basic Economics (footnote deleted):


Even though most studies show that unemployment (thất nghiệp) tends to increase as minimum wages (lương tối thiểu) are imposed (áp đặt) or increased, those few studies that seem to indicate otherwise have been hailed (ca ngợi) in some quarters as having “refuted” (bác bỏ) this “myth.” (huyễn hoặc) However, one common problem (vấn đề phổ biến) with some research (nghiên cứu) on the employment effects of minimum wage laws is that surveys of employers before and after a minimum wage increase can survey only those particular businesses which survived in both periods. Given the high rates of business failures in many industries, the results for the surviving businesses may be completely different from the results for the industry as a whole. Using such research methods, you could survey people who have played Russian roulette and “prove” from their experiences that it is a harmless activity, since those for whom it was not harmless are unlikely to be around to be surveyed. Thus you would have “refuted” the “myth” that Russian roulette is dangerous.
