Zakaria Gets It Right


fareed_zakaria1June 9, 2011 – Well, here's someone who gets it. CNN news analyst Fareed Zakaria, writing in Time magazine, identified several things the U.S. Government needs to do to spur job creation. They are: (a) create a regulatory and tax climate that helps small businesses since they create most of the new jobs, (b) revive manufacturing by focusing on research, technical training and apprenticeship, (c) help growth industries like entertainment and tourism to expand and, perhaps most urgently, (d) rebuild America's dilapidated infrastructure and put millions of people in the construction and housing industries back to work. We need more national media pundits on the same bandwagon and bandwidth, if new legislation is to happen this year.
