Historically, over the past 30 years the United States has done a very poor job by failing to invest heavily in education as its most valuable long term economic stimulus tool. One could truly say based on this fact alone, the leadership of this country has failed the people. Alternatively, the leadership in the United States has invested billions of dollars using tax payer money in constructing jails and nation building military excursions overseas. And yet, the United States education system ranks at the bottom 25th among the 30 leading countries worldwide.
Today, the mobile Internet is about empowering individuals to create and share unique experiences, ideas and perspectives through a global network; says James Rickman 3rd Director iHuman Evolution. In many respects, most people will survive or fail based on their ability to collaborate effectively. The adoption of business automation and human based solutions to manage resources is critical. For the United States, developing a high quality education system that is accessible to all can ensure prolonged social and economic growth. If asked 70% of Americans believe that our country has failed to remain true to its founding principles of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. And yet, the government’s ability to promote these rights has never been more important to our society, where mobile technologies offer individuals low cost, powerful devices capable of influencing large groups of people instantly.

READ MY ARTICLE: “Mobile Internet Education, Enterprise andEconomics”It is now a fact that the U.S. government no longer represents the common people of this oncegreat nation in their qwest of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. There can be “nohappiness” without a decent job in the capitalist model. A job is the base that enables a healthyfamily to flourish and business innovation to develop. The right to work is the promise Americaonce guaranteed, providing our children a sense of purpose. Once upon a time, contracts werecemented based on a simple handshake. Younger generations (45% in poverty) today have lostthe hope and faith that a better life is possible.Solutions to the State of the Nation and Challenges AheadTo start, a complete overhaul to development a flatter simplified tax code is required. During myresearch, I found compelling social reasons for the U.S. to invest heavily in e-Learning and jobskills training that lowers the cost of education by almost 66% in some cases. 1.) Today, the economic crisis continues to show on average nationwide among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (8.8 percent), adult women (8.1 percent), teenagers (24.6 percent), whites (8.0 percent), blacks (16.0 percent), and Hispanics (11.3 percent) showed little or no change in September. The jobless rate for Asians was 7.8 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, October 2011. To help, I propose a $150 billion total ($3 billion per state) national program to retrain unemployed workers fully paid for by the Federal government with support from corporations and administered by the Small Business Association or similar
  2. 2. organizations. The trade school model would focus on retraining in areas such as teaching, healthcare, skilled technicians and information technology administration. There should be no age restrictions with trainees receiving a certificate upon graduation. Under my proposed plan, corporations would receive significant tax breaks for hiring retrained workers. 2. Upgrading the U.S. Education System will take a long term commitment over the next 10-years. To help, I propose the Federal government, private corporations and state governors meet to develop a model flexible enough to serve the local workforce needs with benchmark criteria embedded into the plan. This bold education initiative according to my calculations should deliver upwards of $5 billion per state or $250 billion total within the next 3-years. The funds would be spent on education programs only of early childhood development, grade school courses on mobile device based learning platforms, mathematics, science, writing, reading and music / visual arts. To help fund education, I suggest the President takes bold leadership actions now by immediately ordering the withdrawal of all troops from both Iraq and Afghanistan. This saves the U.S. almost $200 billion annually. These foreign occupation interests can become far more cost effective using advanced military technologies. READ MY ARTICLE: "The Future of Warfare U.S. Cyber Security and 5412 Committee Special Operations"The urgency for bold leadership actions in America has reached a boiling point. Theunemployment numbers are particularly devastating when coupled with the recent study,“Comparative Indicators of Education in the United States and Other G-8 Countries: March2009”; a report that found the United States public education system ranks very low compared toother industrialized nations in providing our country with educated high wage workers. Forexample, the U.S. ranks about 25th out of 30 countries in math and 24th out of 30 countriesin science skills. This fact means kids graduating school and adults training for careers qualifynow only for low level wage jobs considered about $10 per hour a labor rate that is easilyreplaceable.Today, the United States holds less than 24% of the worlds 194 million college level degrees --degrees broadly equivalent to a U.S. baccalaureate. In 1990, the U.S. share was closer to 33% ofthe worlds then 73 million degrees. Notice the shift of about 10% within a short time that affectsthe economic ability of the U.S. to capture global R&D venture capital money and high wagejobs.For evidence the U.S. is rapidly losing its grip on R&D innovation in the key high wageindustries examine the clean technology sector and energy industry emerging leaders including;solar cells, automotive, clean technology, manufacturing (China/Asia), wind power, ocean wavepower (Europe), manufacturing, electric battery techs (Japan/South Korea), biotechnology,industrial (Germany/Israel), information technology, bio-fuels, energy (India/Brazil) amongmany other sector examples.
  3. 3. Author’s ConclusionThe mobile Internet sector will continue growing annually at 20% or more for the next 5-years.This growth will be driven by global population trends and competitive economic factors. Thewidespread global accessibility and low cost for wireless e-Learning and mobile Internet toolswill accelerate innovation among emerging countries. The exploding middle class workingpopulations in countries like China, Brazil and India followed by Singapore, Bangladesh,Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, The Philippines, South Korea, Turkey,Canada and Vietnam will drive economic competition for highly educated workers in order tosupport demands for a better standard of living. These emerging countries should be consideredamong the United States most significant competition for the next 30-years, says James Rickman3rd Director iHuman Evolution.
