Generation jobless

Generation jobless | Fordward America Trends | Scoop.it
Authoritative weekly newspaper focusing on international politics and business news and opinion.
Vince Hoang's insight:

A government may seriously consider different scenarios of solving a years-long unemployment issue not only to maintain the national economic growth but also the national security. Young people with high school diplomas or college degrees have struggled to get reliable jobs for monthly expenditure. The lower unemployment rate is the more confidence a market performs. 

 

Investors can daily scan all variables to discover their opportunities of making profits - sells or buys or holds. Corporations have defensed their market positions with a broader range of business management strategies - outsourcing, prioritized R&D concentration, M&A tactics and streamlined workforce size. 

 

To learn CEOs' behaviors and investors' aggressive decisions, observers can map future market outlooks with adjustments of consumers' financial conditions and spending habits. China's economic growth speed used to be considered how dynamic and win-win China's central government policies controlled and influenced not only the 1.3-billion-plus-consumer economy but also the rest of the world where made-in-China products and money have competed with and targeted on. But China's global trade exchange mechanism has still needed at least those factors - (a) domestic market expansion, (b) perpetual job creation, and (c) large trade surplus. If one of those factors is less positive or large enough, China will experience so-called hard-landing economic performance. E.U econmic zone has began severe economic challenges from sovereign debts to unemployment. U.S. economy is depended on government's spending size, corporate earnings and job creation. As long as developed nations' shoppers still purchase import goods from developing and emerging countries, the global economy can continue growing in terms of moderate unemployment rate, increased GDP per capita and stabilized conditions.

That swooning feeling

That swooning feeling | Fordward America Trends | Scoop.it
Authoritative weekly newspaper focusing on international politics and business news and opinion.
Vince Hoang's insight:

U.S. policy makers may take a few financial and economic calculating formulas to anticipate and project U.S. future economic outlooks. Those formulas can explain pair-to-pair relations among those variables: 

 

1. GDP growth and Tax revenue size

2. Unemployment rate and Budget deficit size

3. Foreign trade account and outstanding public debt (issued bonds)

4. U.S. companies' overseas sales revenues and earnings versus domestic sales revenues and earning related to unemployment rate

5. U.S. student loans and unemployment rate

6. U.S. companies and their ranking positions of innovation and creativity versus U.S. GDP percentage of the World GDP

7. U.S Foreign aid programs and U.S. trade gains 

 

Employment, GDP growth and public debt are the most three sensitive indexes for policy makers to worry. Foreign investors may  anticipate U.S. economic outlook in order to make their bets on bonds, stocks and real estate markets.

Move American Forward? Where are answers?

America Forward, a non-partisan initiative, brings together policymakers and leaders from across sectors to unite public and private expertise and resources with the impact of social innovations

Vince Hoang's insight:

Creativity and innovation are two elements to establish a long-term foudnation for American to re-emerge. Those two elements are mostly discussed to provide solutions for corporations. But the federal and state governments still need those two elements because constraints of budgets and employees are. The federal and state governments need sufficient budgets to launch most approved programs and guarantee resources available to society or residents (permanent residents and citizens). Legislators and administrative directors understand their roles as leaders and budget managers. Their decisions are necessarily funded by tax money directly coming from taxpayers. What unknow elements can move American forward? 

 

American needs economic miracles that can secure jobs and healthy corporate performances. The U.S. stock market can attract investors to pour money in public traded firms and daily trade their portfolios for gains and loss. Taxes on transactions and earnings are among resources of tax revenues. Consumers earn money from their works and investment plans as long as their financial conditions allow them to do so. Consumers annualy pay taxes to both federal and state governments. Such positive and optimistic scenarios are for economic activities. 

 

Other concerns related to healthcare, same-sex marriage and foreign policies rebuild the new images of American society. Constitutions, human rights, employment equality and foreign relations have also nurtured American foundations and spirits on which American entrepreneurship and wealth are built. But one medicin shot cannot cure all illnesses or diseases. American political systems are gradually experienced to revolve themselves for future sustainable economic and political harmony and optimized mechanism.

Vince Hoang's insight:

About Us

About Us | Fordward America Trends | Scoop.it
FWD.us is an organization started by key leaders in the tech community to promote policies to keep the United States and its citizens competitive in a global economy.
Vince Hoang's insight:

A business can operate more effective, productive and profitable when it can access to necessary inputs and resources such as money, technologies, workforce and ideal business assistance. Government agencies usually respond with both free and charged services available to new start-ups and established companies because the governments expect to receive more taxes from successful businesses. 

 

Politicians and lobbysts can protect the national security, economic growth and other interests. But the former may encounter some implicit issues from nationalism, protectionism and personal ideologies and interests. Those bottle-neck issues can prevent U.S. corporations and new start-ups from accessing to cheap and world-class competent workforce in foreign countries. Human components are ultimately the most sensitive and vital factor driving a company forwward in terms of creativity, innovation, revenues, market shares, market capitalization and customer services. U.S. high-tech and IT companies can use state-of-the-art equipment, machines and tools to increase productivity, economics of scale, uptime availability, low-cost logistics and information management capaibility, but those companies still need annual supplies of competent and skillful employees in different fields - engineering, science, design, manufacturing, R&D, computer science, hardware and software development, biology, finance and services. If U.S. education system fails to supply qualified and competent graduates and candidates, U.S. companies (employers) will look out to hire foreign candidates. What are reasons and long-run benefits? 

 

Diverse cultures, educational backgrounds and personal passions can influence on employees' performance and contribution. Such objective observation and analyses can convince how many successful start-ups were founded by American immigrants and American immigrants' children. Those companies have not only created new jobs and paid taxes but also reinforced U.S. economy in terms of international trade advantages and sales revenues.

Gridlock is No Way to Govern

Gridlock is No Way to Govern | Fordward America Trends | Scoop.it
Norman J. Ornstein and Thomas E. Mann respond to Larry Summers’ April 15, 2013 op-ed column in The Washington Post entitled “When gridlock is good.”
Vince Hoang's insight:

It is an once-in-lifetime moment for U.S. policy makers to handle too many challenge issues and responsible find sustainable solutions over those constroversial issues: 

 

1. Domestic energy production and renewable resources to minimize import energy dependence 

2. Universal healthcare system especially serving low-income and middle class consumers with sustainable expenditure budgets 

3. Same-sex marriage and related rights to transform both tax system and employment benefits 

4. Gun control and background check procedures to keep society safety and prosperity 

5. Long-term budget and tax revenues through spending sizes and tax rates on individuals and corporations 

6. Foreign policies and immigrant laws as dual economic and diplomatic gains to reinforce U.S. economic strengths and international relations

7. Education reforms as indirect way to revise U.S. economic competitiveness and student loan solutions

 

Driving American forward is the most challenging job for President Obama, his administration and U.S. Congress. U.S. industries also have their own interests and immediate responses to improve their hiring processes, sales revenues, earnings, tax payment and social responsibility.
