The rest of the world is also dealing with massive unemployment

2 posts / 0 new

The United States isn’t the only nation dealing with chronic unemployment – the rest of the world is too! A new report by the World Bank says that the global economy needs to create 200 million jobs to recover from the worldwide recession and reach full employment. Twenty-seven million jobs were lost around the world when the economy went in the tank in 2008 – and subsequent job growth hasn’t been nearly strong enough to keep up with the 40 million new people who enter the workforce every single year.

One way to create jobs is to unleash a green revolution around the world to cut carbon emissions and use energy more efficiently. Now only if we can get the oil barons out of the way to get started.

Part of the Movie Thrive Movement is about suppression of free and green energies by the oil giants, Federal Reserve and Goldman Sachs. Its going to take a full frontal assualt on interlocking corporate control over our banking and energy productions. Nationalize the banks and nationalize energy.

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
