Whether you long for Reagan’s Morning in America, voted for Obama’s Hope and Change, or to Make America Great Again, you have found the right place because SOLUTIONOMICS is about solutions, not politics.
It’s not left, it’s not right, it’s about ROI. Implementing a decision-making process based on return on investment “ROI” is the first step in improving our economic and political systems.
Working over twenty five years in America’s financial sector for both large and small companies and now as the director of research and strategy for a $10 billion institutional investment fund manager, I have experienced firsthand what drives economic growth, what stimulates job and wage growth. And I’ve seen up close both how the financial sector operates and its role within the economy. My experience also includes advising the Chicago and Washington, D.C. districts of the U.S. Federal Reserve as well as CalPERS, the largest U.S. public pension fund.
Solutionomics breaks America’s stubborn political divide in a refreshing way. It illustrates how simple, yet powerful changes in economic incentives and Congressional transparency can motivate CEOs and politicians, both Republican and Democrat, to elevate the competitiveness of the U.S. economy, raise the earning potential of American workers, and reset American democracy so that it once again drives national prosperity. — Author: Phillip T.
