The Great Wage Slowdown of the 21st Century and the Loss of our Education Edge

The Great Wage Slowdown of the 21st Century and the Loss of our Education Edge | People Data, Infographics & Sweet Stats | Scoop.it
The typical family makes less than the typical family did 15 years ago — which hadn’t been true since the Depression.


Even as the unemployment rate has fallen in the last few years, wage growth has remained mediocre. Last week’s jobs report offered the latest evidence: The jobless rate fell below 6 percent, yet hourly pay has risen just 2 percent over the last year, not much faster than inflation. The combination has puzzled economists and frustrated workers.

....educational attainment has slowed so much that the United States has lost its once-enormous global lead.

...On the growth side, ...both energy and education have been problems. The cost of energy [has] returned to its post-1970s norm in recent years and acted like a tax on the rest of the economy. Education, ...is the lifeblood of economic growth, allowing people to do entirely new tasks (cure a disease, invent the Internet) or to do old ones with less time and expense. Yet educational attainment has slowed so much that the United States has lost its once-enormous global lead.

[Also, health costs are an issue.] ...It’s no accident that the best period of wage growth in the last 40 years – the late 1990s – was also a period of quiescent health inflation.


...The political turmoil isn’t likely to end until the economic reality changes.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

These are short term and long term problems that will exist long beyond 2 and 4 year terms in office.  It remains to be seen what will make the difference in wages, jobs, business creation and overall well-being of Americans, especially considering the high cost of US higher education.  Germany is making a big change in education.  Maybe there are lessons for us there, as there are for energy costs, and elsewhere for health care costs.  ~  D

How Teens Deal With Privacy and Mobile Apps ~ Infographic

How Teens Deal With Privacy and Mobile Apps ~ Infographic | People Data, Infographics & Sweet Stats | Scoop.it

A Pew Internet and American Life survey shows how teens 12 to 17 years old think about privacy when using mobile apps. While some are nonchalant ..., more than half avoid some apps due to privacy concerns.


Though socio-economics are a factor, that’s not the predominant issues, probably because many teens favor free apps. “Eight in ten (79%) teen mobile device owners living in households earning $50,000 or more per year download apps, compared with 60% of those living in households earning less than $50,000 per year. 


70 percent of teens have sought privacy advice from an adult or outside source. Of those “advice-seekers” who have mobile devices, 50 percent turned off location tracking features, as compared to 37 percent of teens who did not seek advice on privacy.

INNOVATING: Meet The Social Entrepreneurs Completely Disrupting The World Of Philanthropy

INNOVATING: Meet The Social Entrepreneurs Completely Disrupting The World Of Philanthropy | People Data, Infographics & Sweet Stats | Scoop.it

The rigid silos of traditional industry and government run directly against the disruptive thinking of the solution economy. Why can’t an inventor better known for robotic limbs and souped-up scooters create a device that purifies water, as Segway inventor Dean Kamen did, and enlist a company like Coca-Cola to distribute it throughout developing countries?

The innovation is good for small and big both.  This has been covered in some other ScoopIts on this curation stream.  It's good to see a reminder about it again.  ~  Deb

Breaking through the traditional ways of thinking allows entire ecosystems to develop around problems. Connected citizens share their concerns about, and interest in, a particular topic. Market demand grows. Enterprising contributors converge to meet an unfilled gap in the market and…a new ecosystem is born.

We do need to encourage creativity in our students. They learn so much more when they handle the content to do something with it.
