We are getting closer and closer to the Presidential Election in November.
Republican and Democratic fields are narrowing with each state primary. It's all boiling down to who will be America's 45th President.
I like to pay close attention to candidates' views on the economy.
- What is their plan to stimulate job creation and work opportunities for every day Americans?
- What programs, tax structures, and incentives do they propose to encourage private investment?
- What policies would they implement to prevent a recession like the one we just rebounded from?
It is not that matters such as education, energy and the environment, health care, defense, and foreign policy are not as important. However, our policies on other issues hinge on the state of the economy.
As our cities, counties, states, and regions go, so does our nation. Jobs, work opportunities, and entrepreneurship begin in our neighborhoods and towns.
America has to continue to be a GDP-growing machine, much like it was following World War II.
So, even now as there is a debate going on, the economy is the issue of critical concern as everything else is impacted by its health.
