Jobs for America

View Slide Presentation

The U.S. economy still needs to generate more jobs to put the young, old and everyone in between back to work. What strategies do policymakers need to pursue? Should the U.S. become more like Texas in streamlining regulations for business? What can be done to improve access to capital for small businesses, which are historically an engine of job creation? Should more aggressive policies such as a temporary federal retraining wage supplement be provided to employers that retrain workers? Should reauthorization of the highway bill be expedited to fix infrastructure and employ construction workers? Should a lower corporate tax rate be provided to manufacturing firms? Should the U.S. do more to bolster exports? Should we expand foreign talent, investor and entrepreneur recruitment? What other ideas might jumpstart job creation?
