REAL JOBS OR JUST A JOB: WHAT WAS REALLY CREATED

Man Standing in Front of Bowl and Looking Towards Left

“What did the government really do?”


them and their creations

Every president that comes into the White House we hear the same speech about job creation. But what I really want to know is, what types of jobs for how many hours and at what pay. We hear job creation and automatically jump for joy. But just listen to how fast that disregard the question when you ask. They really are not people who create anything in America. Anytime you depend on the government to create a job it is usually in the context of providing you with the absolute basic need for what they can afford. So the thing they give you is less than adequate most of the time. So I am always a skeptic when they create something.

its the sector not them

The businesses themselves create the jobs in America, but they always have to await the government’s decisions. Because if the government makes a decision not in the best interest of the business the business can not create anything. So now the people become stuck in this tug-a-war game between the system and the business. what will be the government decision so that the organization can sit down and decide what will come of the company. And if you are an employee or someone looking for a job you could be scared each and every time a new leader takes office in the White House. Because your life is now effected, not really from the company, but their business hinges on the government decision making.

once they step back

When the government steps back then the business is able to operate a little better. Because then the globe is able to engage. But the problem with that is that there are certain places the government does not want business to operate. Only if the operation is in the best interest as what they describe as in the country’s interest. But what does that really mean because isn’t it that if the country is working the country is working? Or would it be better for the government should regulate to the point where now its own people are getting hurt. Because this is what is happening. So I guess good is good if it’s good for me is not always good.

THE BIG HURT: WHEN WILL THE NEXT ECONOMIC COLLAPSE TAKE PLACE

black-and-white, business, chart

“The fall of all falls.”


the fall

Since the Great Depression which was the fall of 1929, the United States has had numerous economic falls. But nothing has come close to rivaling the Great Depression. I’m talking about an economic downturn which sent people into a life of crime to survive. A choice that people thought we never had to make in life to live. You even had a lot of people committing suicide. Doing everything from shooting themselves to jumping from windows. Now, my question is, when will the next big one take place? We came really close back in 2008/2009.

fears

The panic, the fear, the money supply running out, the bank runs. All of the things that people are scared could happen when the big collapse happens. But could America sustain another major fall? Who knows, the next one could be the one the end our civilization. Don’t think that America can last forever. We have had far greater empires come and go, who were much stronger, and lasted longer. Yet no one wants to think about that potentially happening. And if this could happen, what if anything could stop it form happening?

stay ahead of the curb

America has always been the leaders of technological innovation. But is that starting to go away. Because is still strong because the “idea” that we are great exist. And the reason I say idea, is because through so much political and social strife in recent years, we are falling behind other nations. Nations that we never would have thought would become rivals. We have to learn to be innovative and maybe even inventive as we are social and political. If not, you will start to see happen what has happened to great empires in the past, they fall; fall from the strife within.

MASS MEDIA HYSTERIA: HOW CONSTRUCTED STORIES EFFECT A NATION’S GROWTH

Man Reading a Newspaper

“If it’s news, must be important.”


generation information

Remember when breaking news used to be breaking? Now, it seems like anything is breaking news on the television screen. It was done in the past to signify a tragic event, not the news uses it for bringing more eyes on their particular story or agenda. And the problem is that we are now becoming desensitized to the word breaking. But how is this all effecting our economy in America? Is there something to the nation’s economy and the way the news presents the information in various mediums?

stocks go up and then they go down

I’m not someone who is well traversed in the stock market. But whenever the mass media talks about the market, you start to see a shift in confidence. It’s because the average Joe really doesn’t know much about the market. So when they hear commentators discussing the market, it makes them either nervous or optimistic. Because these the trusted people who have worked in the space of finance. So when the commentator starts to question the market, then you will notice, if this person is trusted, a slight show of loyalty to what they are saying. But the commentators don’t have anywhere as much influence as the market numbers in the newspapers or websites.

ratings can’t be the driver

Whenever you see the media, there is always a left or right agenda. Yet when you are presenting the market numbers, having a left or right agenda can hurt directly even more. Because playing with the market’s numbers can effect how people invest, and in turn the jobs in our market. So when presenting information about the market, show the numbers as a reflection of what is because a lot of people have investments riding on those numbers. Views on political parties and social issues are more ambiguous than the numbers that coincide with the market.

BARTER FOR BUSINESS: MAKING MONEY TO NEGOTIABLE WAY

Man in Blue Top Giving Box to Man in Gray Top

“Give me what you got.”


fair exchange

Throughout human history, man has had a variety of methods of exchanging goods and services. And one of those methods was the barter system. You give me this for that, without the use of a consistent price tag. The price for this bag of potatoes is $5.00, but I you only have $3.00. Well how about this, give my the $3.00, and we’ll see what we can negotiate with that. Meaning, I will give you what amounts to $3.00 worth of potatoes. This way you get something and I do as well.

economics

Does the barter system hurt the economy? And the answer to that question is both yes and no. No the economy is not hurt because there is always a constant buying and selling of goods. Also, instead of putting items back on the shelf, you’re selling. And now the inventory that would otherwise be thrown away is used to some degree. The problem with the barter system is that it’s difficult to gauge how strong your currency is in a country. Because you’re paying with a negotiable price, money is not always reported, so it’s hard know the strength of your country via GDP.

small markets

I have stated earlier from posts that America has roughly 19,300 cities and towns. Now, the majority of those places are not major cities, but small towns and cities. And a lot of these places are in markets where jobs have shipped overseas. So is there any possibility that the barter system could work in these places. Because a lot of places are dying because of a lack of job growth. They could use the barter system. Now tell me something, what do you think?

GROWTH OPPORTUNITY: CAN SMALL TOWN AMERICA BOUNCE BACK TO GLORY

Related image

“From hustle and bustle to bust.”


all american 

America has about 19,350 cities and towns, with the majority being small cities and towns. Small places that were once a hustling and bustling town are now desolate. And the reason being is that when companies realized going overseas could mean cheaper labor for higher profit margin, that was it. Small towns and cities that were industrialized started to wither away. Younger generations left and now you have an aging generation left behind.

rebuilding

I wonder, just wonder, is it at all possible to rebuild some of these small towns. Maybe the emerging tech industry will open up new opportunities for these places. Could something possibly be built on the web, or of enough strength that could bring these places around? Because what was once environments for coal mining and steel workers is no more. And with everyone running out to Silicon Valley, is there a chance some of those people can rebuild these broken towns.

they’ll see it, not I

We all would like to build something and reap the benefits of what we built. But what happens when your vision becomes bigger than you? What are you to do when what you want to build you just won’t be around to see. And that is yet another reason why it’s so hard to rebuild these small places. Someone or many people are needed to build for the next generation. Yet who will be the sacrificial lambs to do so. And that’s the big dilemma; who will take one for the team. Because in order to rebuild, someone has to step. Who will it be?

BAD THINGS MAKE MONEY TOO: HOW AMERICA’S DARK SIDE CONTRIBUTE TO THE ECONOMY

Image result for BAD THINGS

“When bad is good.”


america’s underworld

The United States tagline is the land of the free and the home of the brave. We push this tagline, but what happens when the other side of America pops its ugly head up. Or better yet, what happens when an ugliness in America is actually of profit to the economy. And what do I mean by profit to the system. I’m talking the prison system and the criminal underworld. Just as the negatives that come with the crime there are the positives as well.

narco

The narcotics business has been a longstanding issue in the United States going back to the 1970’s. But as with the carnage it brings, there is the monetary gain that a city takes in from the business. The first aspect is the money being spent in an environment by criminals. When the city of Miami was going through its problems back in the 1980’s, the money being generated was staggering. Billions of dollars were made through the narcotics business.

But you also have the funding from the government to battle the drug problem. So, now you have police officers, prosecutors, and judges who are needed for cases. Which an insurmountable amount of jobs. You even have the money taken from drug bust used to upgrade police equipment. Even the drugs are stored and used to lower others for potential drug deals.

trigger happy

People who are engaging in gun running or using guns stolen are the reason for two things. The intervention of the ATF, as well as citizens part taking in gun ownership is now a reason to invest in the firearms market. Especially with the rising fear of terrorism, the gun sales also increase.

iron bars

A major aspect of profiting off of the crime would be the prison systems. This country is going to make money off of you one way or another. And if you are going to be a stand-up citizen then there is a orison for you to go and live. And you’re not going to be just sitting around reading magazines and watching television. You’re going to be working the jobs that have left he job market and made its way to America’s penitentiaries. And the next you talk to a telemarketer, don’t be shocked if they are actually a corrections inmate.

Prison has become this assembly line of people coming in and going out. Cost the country money to try cases, so now it becomes a cookie cutter get them and get them out. Give this guy 10 years, this guy 3 years, this guy 6 months, and this guy 50 years. We have our chart with time associated with crimes, put the time to the charge and see you later.
