Issue: Economic Inequality

It is becoming ever more obvious that income and wealth inequality exists in the United States, and is becoming greater with time. The "unhappiness" of the population in a country has been described as increasing with increased economic inequality (reference), and this potentially can lead to social disruption and the failure of the very capitalism that we cherish in this country. This issue area solicits input as to how we might begin to deal with this matter.
Instruction: Under each of the topics below, please make your contribution of a proposal to deal with the topic/problem, or provide a statement of unintended consequences. Feel free to comment on any contribution submitted by others.
  • Jobs for Youth Through Infrastructure Renewal

    A potential major solution is available to generate employment opportunities for young people. It is to develop jobs across the country via a major investment by government and the private sector in infrastructure renewal and development. This will result in the creation and expansion of small local businesses that will hire people at all levels of education and experience, and which will either provide direct services to the major infrastructure projects, or indirect services to the employees of those projects.
