  • I would love to see an overlay of 1870-1950 to this chart to see if the present day trend is similar to the 1920s. is there a report with that sort of comparison somewhere?

  • After read the last slideshares about figures, I connect two ideas, with this presentation, You could take the public works (about the bridges which needs maintenance, and new jobs) as a source of new jobs. Meanwhile you invest in SME's and micro-enterprises.

  • @AmbassadorHope The credit issue I do consider essential and has been a problem for a long time. When I helped organize a silicon valley startup, OST, we had a business model that tended to generate a high accounts receivable, eventually growing to the 50K+ range each month, which is rather large for a small enterprise.

    Each year we were rather profitable, but we could not secure financing for that ar. Banks were only interested if we wanted to borrow 1 to 10 million, not say 100K. We ended up carrying it on credit cards each year because there was no other option available, and this of course was not very sustainable. So in 2005 we finally had to close, and 8 people became unemployed, not because the market failed for us, or our products were wrong, or that we could not grow, but simply because we could not secure credit to meet continuing business needs.

    Credit though is only one issue. Unlike my generation, who had looked at places as Silicon valley as the future and 'the place to be', when I speak with younger people today, they speak with the same excitement and wistfulness about Taipei Towers. Those working now try to get themselves there any way they can. That is where many of the new generation of the best and brightest now see the future. And business credit is just one part of the problem.

    A lack of industrial policy, and a political culture that now clearly favors the law of rule over the rule of law also drives what is clearly becoming a growing exodus. I am quite familiar with this as well. While I have found no support nor opportunity for developing anything original in your United States in almost a decade now, some of my ideas, including how to change delivery of emergency medical services, have already been openly embraced and adopted by both national governments and commercial entities elsewhere. Your United States is truly destroying it's future to protect present entrenched interests, and I think it will take much more than a simple executive order to fix that.
