income stream
It’s approximated 7 billion people live in this world. How many of these people do you think actually contribute to the economic productivity within this world? Definitely not all, but does even half of the population have a significant contribution towards the economy? No, not even half. The world does not operate in this manner, and due to that fact only a small percentage of people have the opportunity to explore the abundance of this man-made world. The rest of us just get to sit back and wonder what if… Read More How to Create Your Own Economy

In a previous post I discussed the Coming Divide, which highlights the bold dividing lines wealth and income plays in our society. If you have not read it prior to viewing this post I encourage you to do so. The reality of our nation is that it is owned by a few hands, 10% of the total population if we are speaking statistically. Further expanding on this control, this 10% holds over 90% of the financial wealth in this nation. That is a mind-boggling statistic to fully comprehend. What makes these statistics even more daunting is the reality of the ever shrinking pie that the majority are left to eat from. Just so we understand, the majority is those of us who are not fortunate enough to be included in the coveted 10%. We all know that the Great Recession was fierce and its damaging impact was great, but where was the most damage inflicted? Read More The Coming Divide: Where Do You Fall Along the Line?

2012

The year of 2012 seemed to be a year that had a lot of great promise but sharply fell flat in delivering any generous returns on such promises. Our so-called leaders have increased their bickering and unwillingness to compromise, it seems the citizens of this country have gone mad and our push towards stability and progressive growth has stalled. Going into 2013 looks like the bad we were in is only going to get worst. That in itself is a very scary thought to ponder. Read More An Examination of 2012

The world we live in today is very fragmented and divided. We are divided in our ideology, in our educational attainment, in our societies but probably most importantly in our wealth. Money, wealth, finances and social class are very discussed words in the world topics of today. These words point to the growing issue we all nearly face, not only as a nation but on a global scale. To say it plain and simple, “the rich continue to get richer while the poor get poorer.” Read More The Coming Divide

CNN Money recently had an article posted on its website called “The low-wage jobs explosion.” The article basically explained how the resurgence in the job market has largely been fueled by low-wage jobs. These are the type of jobs that can barely, if at all cover the basic necessities for one to live comfortably. Matter of fact let’s take out the word comfortably and just say to maintain a reasonable standard of living. This means a continual erosion of the middle class is occurring in our American society. As the middle class is progressively shifted downwards, government assistance is elevated in order for people to acquire the basic goods and services no longer afforded to them. And this is just low-wage jobs we are talking about so take into account the impact that unemployment is having on our overall economy. Read More Unemployment, Low-Wages & Entrepreneurship

Lately you may have been hearing the terms “global economy” and “global competitiveness”. Just as the name states the global economy is an economy that is dependent on production and consumption on a global scale. This means that production at one place can equate to products being consumed at another location thousands of miles away. This would seem like a great situation but the advantages of a global economy can sometimes seem minimal compared to its disadvantages. What disadvantages can come from a globally connected marketplace you may ask. Let’s take a look at the global economy and how it shapes the economy and job market we all operate within.
