Pro and con arguments are a wonderful way to teach students about a topic and to
think critically. The content is very relevant and the links provide a wealth
of additional information. As a user from the U.S., I obviously wish the topics
were more international (rather than UK) and that the dialogue was more American
(rather than British). But I am inspired to create a similar tool for our
domestic business issues.

Technical Remarks:

Well done and easy to use. Novice users should not have any difficulty
navigating within this site.
