  • 1. The Retiring Baby Boomers: Will We Be Able To Replace Them?
    Presented By:
    Zach Mahaney
  • 2. Rising Above The Gathering Storm
    Due to Globalization, driven by modern
    communications and other advances, workers in
    virtually every sector must now face competitors
    who live just a mouse-click away in Ireland,
    Finland, China, India, or dozens of other nations
    whose economies are growing.
    This has been aptly referred to as the Death of Distance.

  • 3. Economic Stresses Like Never Before
    Technology is accelerating, and its effects are becoming more pervasive. Its affects not just what we produce but also what is asked of us and how we are organized to produce it.
    Globalization is accelerating as well, with the links among nations becoming not just more numerous, but deeper, as the developing world moves to higher-valued services once thought the exclusive province of advanced nations.
    Demographics in the United States are about to change dramatically, as baby boomers enter retirement and the prime-age adult populations shrink in comparison to the numbers of old and young.

  • 7. The World Is Shrinking Fast
    Since,1993, the rise in the U.S. trade deficit with Canada and Mexico through 2002 has caused the displacement of production that supported 879,280 U.S. jobs.
    Source: The High Price of Free Trade, Robert E. Scott, Economic Policy Institute
    • Fears engendered by off shoring have a valid basis. Since January 2001, the U.S. economy has lost almost 2 million jobs.

  • 8. Challenged Like Never Before
    U.S. lacking influx of engineers and scientists into the workforce
    25% of current science and engineering workforce is over 50 years old
    U.S. ranks 17th in world in students pursuing engineering and science degrees
    Demand for these professionals will grow at 5 times the rate for other professions in the next several years
  • 9. “We need to be telling our kids to hurry up and eat and get to their homework - there are kids in China and India who are starving for our jobs”
    The Perfect Storm…
    The numbers gap
    The ambition gap
    The education gap
    An Indian Engineer only earns1/5 the
    wages of an American Engineer.

  • 10. How Does The U.S. Measure Up Internationally?
    17th in 8th grade reading
    26th in 8th grade math
    20th in 8th grade science
    16th in high school graduation rates
    “South Korea, about the same size as
    Ohio in square miles, graduates more
    students with science, technology,
    engineering and mathematics degrees
    than the whole United States”

  • 15. College Access: How Do We Compare?
  • 16. ACT Research Results
    Research results show that the level of readiness needed to enter workforce training programs and to enter college are comparable.

  • 18. Even Blue-Collar Jobs Require Higher-Level Skills
    Requirements for tool and die makers
    Four or five years of apprenticeship and/or postsecondary training
    Algebra, geometry, trigonometry and statistics
    Requirements for sheet metal workers
    Four or five years of apprenticeship
    Algebra, geometry, trigonometry and technical reading

  • 19. Societal Change?
    For the past 25 years, we have optimized
    our organizations for efficiency and
    quality.
    Over the next quarter century, we must
    optimize our entire society for innovation.

  • 20. Higher Education Act of 1965
    Purpose to provide the opportunity for more lower and middle income families to go to college
    Reality: Today we have not only less mobility than we did twenty years ago, but also less than in most other developed countries

    SOURCE: Hancock, 2006
  • 21. Solution
    Revise Higher Education Act of 1965 to pay for an associate degree for every student
    Upon graduation if student is not employed within six months, they work for a government civilian core to obtain experience for employment
    Provide 80% income tax deduction for education beyond an Associate Degree

  • 22. Technology and the Economy
  • 23. The Road We Must Take?
    The average wages of high school graduates and non-completers have fallen over the last two decades
    The average income of those who went beyond high school has risen
    Technology and trade will separate the economy into two camps-those with the skills to participate in the global economy and those who lack them
    If we do not make a concerted effort to move our society beyond this boundary, we run the risk of losing our middle class

  • 24. America’s Secret Sauce
    A mixture of institutions, laws, and cultural norms that produce a level of trust, innovation, and collaboration that has enabled us to thrive for more the two centuries and constantly renew our economy and raise our standard of living
    America must continueto roll up its sleeves
    educate its young people the right wayfor these times and tend to and enrich the secrets of our sauce
