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.

GOOD DEEDS: WHAT ARE THE POSITIVES OF TRUMP’S WIN ON THE ECONOMY

Image result for MAGA

“Is America better now?”


trump’s america

Since the election of President Donald J. Trump, there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the commander and chief. Numerous protest, investigations, cabinets members removal, and outside allegations. But is there anything in the country going good on the economic side? Is there some truth to the motto, “Make America Great Again?” A lot think not, but there are those that think so. Well, let’s observe that for a minute.

positives

Do we have any positives for the economy under this administration? Let’s observe that for just a moment. For starters the economy is at a higher growth rate in the first few months of 2018 than it’s normal average. And the economy growth has been at its highest since the economic recession almost ten years ago. And then to add to it, the tax cuts of over one trillion dollars. So maybe there is something to this administration performing well.

controversial statement

When you say what has Trump done that was of good nature, people get emotional. And the perception of a person is nearly impossible to shift once people have their minds made up. Only me, I have my political agenda, but I also have perspective. And that is why people will find it hard to believe any good can come of this administration. We can’t see the economics because socially and politically we disagree so much. So much so, that even if we were to enter a new Gilded Age, he would still be disliked.

OPEN THE COAL MINES: WHY AREN’T OUR POLITICIANS HONEST ABOUT OUR FUTURES

brown coal, brown coal mining, bucket wheel excavators

“Leave the past behind, yes or no?”


the past to present

In the past, Americans were the pentacle of the world as it pertains to industry. We were king in the industrial revolution, but now the tables have turned. The new game in town is technological innovation and information; two areas where America has slacked. So what must be done to insure that the nation stays in its position on top? Because China surpassed America recently in GDP, but America regained footing on top. Now, America has regulatory laws in place that are different from China, but nonetheless they are right there with us.

industry decline

Americans make what? I’m waiting, what do we really make anymore? Our greatest creation and has been for a while is people. With regards to actual Panoramic Shot of Skygoods and services, we are slowly losing our position. A great deal of our livestock, fruits, and vegetables come from outside America; not to mention about 80% of our seafood. We have become major importers, instead of major exporters as well. We are not making anything that world needs, that the world can get from us less than anywhere else. So what are we to do?

land usage

America has a lot of land, yet we only utilize a small portion of the land for farming. You would think is a fully-functional country, yet so much of our land is preserved for wildlife conservation. But we can’t just start growing crops. Bird's Eye View Of FarmlandFarming doesn’t work that way, it’s a lot that has to go into making sure the land is able to sustain whatever you’re growing. It takes more than just throwing some seeds into the ground and growing crop.

bad ideas

I know this for certain, opening the steel mills, coal mines, and paper mills is not smart. Because anyone who understands even anything basic about business at that level is that when someone creates something better, bye bye. Meaning, we reopen factories, and someone comes along with a better more effective idea, it renders the factory obsolete. I always use the mule puller example. Families used harnesses for themselves attached to mules for farming, until the combine came along. When was the last time you saw a mule puller? Like I said, evolution is a continuous progression from what is basic to what is complex. Factories are basic today; at one point in time, they were complex. But in today’s society an evolution is taking hold, so we must move on.

A DOLLAR HERE IS NOT A DOLLAR THERE: HOW YOUR MONEY WORKS DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU LIVE

blur, cash, close-up

“What I buy here I can’t buy there.”


cost of living

For me, living in New York City, I have noticed that life is a lot different than growing up back in Wisconsin. And when I say different, I mean the high cost of living. The price of one week of groceries is nearly a month back home. And the average rent is a mortgage on a mansion in some places. But you also have to look at the other side. And that other side is that the opportunities are scarce back home as well.

why my dollar won’t stretch

There are a variety of reasons as to why my dollar won’t take me as far in one city as another city. You get what you pay for when you spend money. It’s not just the opportunities in New York, it’s the overall experience. You don’t much of an experience back home. You’re also paying in New York for the ability to live in place where so many people want to live. The attractiveness is what makes the city more money than another. Which is why your money don’t stretch.

big city, bright lights, low cost

Now, there are places in America where you can live that the cost is lower to own a home. You also get more space, but there is a catch. You don’t make the same money in one place as another. The money does not translate into the next city. So a $250,000 salary in New York City is substantially less living in Dallas, Texas. Dallas is a nice major city, but you don’t take that amount with you. You take the monetary equivalent with you. So comfortable life in NYC is going to be the same in Dallas.

translatable money

Being an athlete is probably the only job where the money translate over. So, making $1 million in Los Angeles could mean making $1 million in New York, or even more. Why, well athletes have market value to what they do. So their money can translate to an even bigger amount. Teachers can’t have the same value because you would have to prove as an educator you bring a monetary value to your job. For example, if students that come through you go on to have massive careers then you would have a value. But that is a process that takes damn near an entire lifetime.

SELF-SUSTAINING HARVEST: WILL THE GOVERNMENT EVER ALLOW US TO DO SO

Man Watering the Plant during Daytime

“It’s not that we can’t, we’re not allowed.”


caring for self

Throughout history, farming has been a major aspect of America life. But since we get so many of our crops from outside the country, we are not producing crop here anymore. Why don’t we produce more crop here and become exporters. Or better yet, why are we not self-sustaining? A major reason why is because the United States government has such a strong hold on crop.

The United States government is notorious for telling and even enforcing people not to grow crop. But why are we not allowed to grow and sustain ourselves? There are literally people with their own land starving because they can’t grow what they want on their own land.

what is self-sustaining

When I say self-sustaining, it could mean not only growing your own crop, but also selling the crop you grow. And here is where you will run into problems. When you are trying to build a form of commerce in the space. Because you have a host of sanitary issues that the government will interject themselves within. So what are you to do? What could we really do?

ambiguous sustaining

Now, we already have self-sustaining, and it is called freelance workers. People who are freelance work on their own without a boss/supervisor watching over their work. But when it comes to crop, being freelance is a lot different. Which is odd because anyone can open a restaurant, but it’s hard to sell your crop to anyone. Nonetheless, we have plenty of self-sustaining people.

So in the government’s eyes, self-sustaining already exist. Yet self-sustaining can easily be misconstrued with self-sufficient. Self-sufficient is taking care of “ones” self without outside help and self-sustaining is more of a “systematic” form of sustaining. But as much as we would like the government to allow us sustainability, they will always step in front of our progress.

COMING IN STRONG THIRD PLACE: WHO WILL BE THE NEXT COUNTRY TO SURPASS THE UNITED STATES ECONOMY

Bitcoins and U.s Dollar Bills

“We were kings, kings no more.”


our economy

The United States economy has been the leaders of of the world for decades as far as our economy. But in the recent years, the country of China has become the new face of the global marketplace. Their GDP eclipsed the United States, and there could be others to come along next. Yet the United States has since then regain control as the number one country.

But who will it be to surpass the United States? And another question is, why would another country surpass the United States? A country which has long been the nation that the rest of the world looked to as the standard.

competition

As I said before, we all know that the country of China is America’s main competition. But who is next to come from behind and rival our country?

GERMANY

They are a force to be reckoned with, not only because their economy as it pertains to GDP is fourth in the world, but they are also known for their Image resultengineering. America is not the innovators of the world anymore, and Germany ever since the fall of the Berlin Wall has been making leaps and bounds in growing their economy. Who knows, they could be the pinnacle of freedom in the future.

INDIA

A fast growing economy that is rapidly in a position to rival China with a growth rate increase by at least .1% each year. Doesn’t sound like much, but Horizontal tricolor flag bearing, from top to bottom, deep saffron, white, and green horizontal bands. In the centre of the white band is a navy-blue wheel with 24 spokes.when you are talking trillion dollar economies, even .1% is a lot of growth. That means India currently has approximately a $2.2 trillion economy; with .1% growth, that’s $2.2 billion dollars.

JAPAN

Japan has had to rally back from an economic crash that took place in the Image resultearly 1990’s. But they are on the upswing with an economy that is fifth in the world. They could eventually be the next nation in the distant future to rival the United States.

it ain’t all about numbers

Even with so many countries coming from behind the United States, it’s not all about the numbers. There is a personal/social piece that makes America stand out from the rest. And freedom that we have exist, but there are also major barriers in other countries as well. Don’t get me wrong, we have our problems, but we are a tough force to be reckoned with on Earth.

You would need more than just numbers to surpass America. Because we still have a population of whatever group could pass us in America contributing to this country.
