In “Jump-Starting Real Job Creation in America,” Gary R. Patterson presents a clear and comprehensive analysis of the complex issues facing America’s job market. He introduces the flaws in the job creation principles of both the Democrat and Republican parties in light of their current interpretation of Keynesian consumer-driven demand.
After an in-depth discussion of the issues, difficulties, status, and stance taken by politicians, Democrats and Republicans alike, Patterson demystifies the formidable interrelated economic challenges threatening the country. His analysis includes: Job creation, tax reform, entitlements, eliminating the Annual Trillion Dollar Federal Deficits and balancing the Annual Federal Budget. Once he has defined the problems, Patterson offers common sense, achievable solutions that are financially plausible, actuarially and demographically vindicated.
He explicitly suggests, a private sector job creation initiative that would reduce the financial risk of employers hiring new workers based on creating a sustained jobs creation tax credit.
