Jim Clifton Writes of “The Coming Jobs War.” Not Present Jobs War!

Open Book and Discussion Group based on the book:

The Coming Jobs Wars: What Every Leader Must Know About The Future of Job Creation

The book was written by Jim Clifton

Discussion Tuesday evening 10.18.11 at 7

Greetings All,

That’s right, Jim Clifton has written “The Coming Jobs Wars” and not “the existing jobs wars,” yet Clifton claims that he is “hopeful.” He, banking on 75+ years of Gallup data, details his own map toward recovery and it doesn’t involve federal stimulus, or at least, not much. Clifton puts actual unemployment figures at 20% currently? No numbers offered on “under-employment.” Is somebody lying to us? Unless you are retiring in the next few hours you need to get your hands on this book in some form. Right wing or left-wing you will not agree with all of it. Job coaches, hiring managers, H/R teams, educators better pay sharp attention to this content because the war games just went global and there is nothing “game” about them.

According to Gallup, “America’s most pressing problem is a lack of good jobs.”  This is a challenging read and not much fun. You may very well feel resentment at even having to be concerned with such churnings. It is one of the most thoughtful and innovative books that I have read since the Wall Street cataclysm hit. It does offer some new and interesting solutions or attempts at solutions. Clifton deserves to be heard out and great rewards may befall those daring enough to embrace his strategies. Get ready for the toughest war America has ever had to fight. Clifton’s tactics may reap global rule. I prophesy high casualties. Regardless, there will be no neutral states. “Washington will have nothing for you” claims Clifton. You must place the pressure for solutions on your local “job creators and tribal leaders.”

Will you be ready for the challenges ahead? Clifton offers solutions that I have not read elsewhere. Read this book or join us for the book discussion Tuesday.

“War” Ruminations:

  • “What do seven billion people want globally? “
  • “What do one hundred-fifty million Americans want?”
  • Is the answer on local or federal levels?
  • If you were to launch a “start-up” what would it be? How would you fund it?
  • Who encourages job creation? How?
  • Who and where are the incubators?
  • Is job creation more of a “spirit” or “tricky fiscal-gimmicky thing?”
  • What is the role of “innovation?” “Entrepreneurship?”
  • What do we all need to learn?
  • What role will formal education have vs. street smarts?
  • What is the role of the entrepreneurial start-ups? Who are they?
  • Who are the local “tribal leaders?” How much can they do?
  • What is more important? Terrorism? War? Health Care? Education? Infrastructure?
  • What about people that have given up and aren’t even looking for work?
