a reply to: Byrd
So for example, adding 3 or 4 (or more) million jobs won't help?
Yes but how? Just saying something doesn't make it happen.
I think he has mentioned the international corporations need to come back to the U.S.
That would add jobs and reduce poverty.
Again..... how? I believe that's Byrd's point.
The how can not be answered simply because it is (should be) multi - faceted.
Education - new standards, more choice, better teacher skills assessment and training, more schools, smaller classes, increased scholarships
(academic), cheaper (free) day care with pre-school learning, comprehensive transport.
Infrastructure - investment in roads, public transport and social facilities (sports, clubs, academic, outdoor), retail incentives for chains and
small businesses to open in inner cities
Policing - more police, investment in training, community outreach (meaning every household should know who they can talk to), 100% body cams.
Jobs - not just incentives for businesses to come back to the US, but specifically to commutable areas around inner cities. Zone areas for development
and tax breaks for business. As above , incentives for small businesses outside the retail sector. Recruitment policies linked to incentives.
They'll come up with a plan, but the detail will have to be thrashed out and this should be done with representatives within the inner city community.
I liked how Trump articulated his plan for the VA, talking about organisational structure and accountability. The same type of organisation is needed
in inner cities with ultimately every family having a route to get involved and influence. It's often said that those in the run down inner cities
need to help themselves - getting people involved and giving them the tools and the framework as well as the incentive would seem smart. It's not
rocket science though. The bottom line is that proportionally more (much more) investment will need to go to inner cities for the next decade.
