It's like a light bulb is going off. Let's start a new industrial revolution. Let's think of a new industry everyone has interest in for one reason or another. What are the buzz words all are talking about? Do I hear interest in creating jobs, using less power, green, environmental concepts, green building , energy efficiency, using our own natural resources, not importing oil and interest in having lower utility bills. Who hasn't heard the possibilities of having healthier indoor air quality? Who isn't interested in energy savings unless you are seriously out of touch? Big business adding more product lines for developing renewable energy, funded by tax breaks and tax incentives could be worth a look. If you are a company and hire 10 or 100 people and you get X amount of a tax break, to equal the savings, isn't that called a win win situation?. Now, if you like that idea, make it happen NOW and make it mandatory legislation by the Feds. This means that banks, manufactures, of all goods must participate in 2010. Let's not go over and over it over and over. Just try it. If a home or business is renovated to become carbon neutral, the interest rate could be as low as 2%. This is not my idea. This is a program from Architecture 2030. Now, begin to educate those in the workforce in the new arena of energy and green building. Keep the prices low, keep education within reach. Our company Green Real Estate Education keeps every 'green' course we offer under $100.
Businesses and the IRS can help change the economy and create jobs
I have some questions for what our country's principles were built from. How have jobs been created in the past? I don't remember it being the governments' responsibility to create jobs or pay for this. Aren't we a happier bunch when people are not on unemployment and gainfully occupied? Isn't it the responsibility of those who are in business to employee those locally? I got that impression. Now, I'll chime in on what I feel will really turn things around.
