American corporations are investing heavily in other countries, transferring jobs, knowledge and capital to other countries; consequently, millions of American workers are losing jobs and most Americans are losing ground economically . The rich continue to get much richer, while most other Americans are getting poorer. Let’s stop this trend and take our country back!
The goal of the proposed solutions below are to reduce exportation of American resources (jobs, knowledge, and capital) and increase investments in the U.S. How? Enact new laws that better protect American resources and workers.
1). Implement new geographic-centric trade laws.
Products and services consumed in the U.S.A, should be produced in the U.S.A.
Products and services consumed outside the U.S.A, can be produced outside the U.S.A.
This law will significantly reduce unemployment in the USA because millions of off-shore
outsourced jobs will be required to come back to the U.S.A. If American corporations
threaten to leave the USA, let’s seize their facilities and assets in the USA.
We have plenty of well educated experienced professionals in the USA (many unemployed)
that are capable of successfully running a corporation for the benefit of all (employees ,
shareholders, community, society).
2). Revise corporate government-mandated reporting rules.
Require full transparency of all American Corporate off shoring activity, including the
number of jobs being created in other countries. Currently, the volume of off-shore
outsourced jobs is unknown because American corporations are not required to report
on these and other related offshore activities (environmental impact, labor working
conditions, etc); consequently, multinational conglomerates off shore resources operate
without independent oversight.
3). Enact consumer advocacy laws that permit public access to corporate
government-mandated reporting data on American firm’s foreign activities.
This access would allow Consumer Advocacy groups to review, evaluate, and
report publically, with impunity, on American firms efforts to become good corporate
citizens, (e.g., note the number of offshore outsourced jobs, environmental impacts
world-wide, labor working conditions world-wide) and rate corporations (A, B, C, D, F).
Concerned Americans could then make informed decisions about which corporations they
choose to do business with and whose products to buy (or boycott).
4). Revise tax laws to provide financial incentives to invest in the USA.
Provide incentives to corporations (domestic and non-domestic) to build new facilities
and hire American Workers in the U.S.A.
