Is the rate at which jobs are created in the US enough for the growth of its population?
I was having a discussion with a friend about the current unemployment problem we seem to have.
He told me one point of view I should take on it is this. Right now the amount of people without a job in the US is close to Canada’s population. At first I thought wow never look at it in such a way. That is….well a lot people.
However I thought it was interesting, after viewing some of the charts off of Google that really there has been worse times in the US. If anything it would seem that the unemployment right is going to correct itself over time. If that makes sense..? More or less there are spikes and dips throughout.
Another point I’ve seen brought up is that we don’t create jobs here in the US anymore which brings me back to this thing of if our population keeps going up and jobs are going down overall. Is this not a recipe for disaster?
One last thing. I can’t argue to business people or companies who produce else where and outsource. I wish they would hire Americans and build things here. I’d like to see more
“Made in America” But at the end of the day they do have the freedom to choose how they want to handle their company or whatever their business is.It has also been said we need to get rid of regulation and give more incentives for businesses.
But if we do that we won’t create a double edge sword. Too less regulation and companies or corporations could get away with too much? How do we even know for sure that it work?If we need to help businesses, what kind of “incentives” do we give them? How do you find a good balance of this?
Anyways sorry for this long winded question. Most of this bring me back to my main question, if the population growth contines and job growth is slowing and being outsourced. What should be done? Is it inevitable?
Please take a look at the charts as well. I am under the assumption that these are accurate enough.
