>regulating such wage rates hurts economic efficiency

It forces people to contradict the judgment of their minds, man's basic method of survival. Further, in capitalism, there is constantly increasing production and constantly lowering costs. This benefits all, including the least productive workers. The poor in capitalism live much better than the "rich" in all pre-capitalist history. What good is a castle without central heating?

>Speaking from a strictly mathematical point of view, minimum wage, reduces labor cost rather than increases labor cost.

Is your alleged math a revelation from the supernatural? Here, in the concrete, material universe, there are no contradictions. Thus minimum wage increases costs. Govt sticks a gun in the faces of businessmen and forces them to pay employees MORE than a voluntary trade between business and employee. Govt forces increased cost. Again, the economics of this situation is not basically important to min wage advocates who want to force business to sacrifice. Without that moral issue, they would not care about wages.

I meant that the advocates of min wage believe that business has a moral obligation to sacrifice because they have more money, ie, more values, than employees. The alleged benefit to employees is not the moral issue for advocates.

Are you discussing the values of advocates , economic law, or what?

Minimum wage laws exist to sacrifice business. Aiding low-wage employees is a cover for sacrifice.

>But £1,000 in a bank, I can still use it and the bank still lends my £1,000 to someone else.

If cows were deposited and the bank attempted to lend the cows while the depositor also had access to the cows, it would run afoul of the Law of Non-Contradiction. Imagine, if you will, the depositor milking a cow while the borrower takes a sirloin from it. Let's see the Fed try to create cows...

>The bank never lends your deposits. They create new ones.

Is this bank creation of deposits like God's creation of the universe? And on the seventh day, the Counterfeiter rested.
