Crown Advises in "Black Swan" Economy, Get Smart - Literally
KNOXVILLE, Tenn., May 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- While some look at the currently stagnating economy and hope that some kind of jobs bubble burst with recovery on the horizon, Crown President Robert Dickie III says the current employment shift represents a "Black Swan" event; marking a new direction for job creation. Understanding the new normal is important for those who want thrive in the new economy.
In a piece at the Knoxville News Sentinel, Dickie observed: "Americans have spent the last two years arguing over the Affordable Health Care Act and its impact on the economy as if this were the premier event choking growth. This has prevented us from addressing equally important issues that will have an even greater impact."
"Three issues in particular are evidence of a Black Swan event reworking our economic structure: The increasing rate of globalization; The advancing technology displacing work forces, and The suffocating laws and regulations governing free market capitalism. All three have had a much greater impact on an unprepared global population, far beyond the scale of the Affordable Care Act."
The answer? Reduced regulations and some "Get Smart" initiatives for prospective employees.
"Government must be more cautious about enacting legislation and regulation, which impede job creation," warned Dickie. "This is the time to begin requiring economic impact studies that focus on jobs before adding to the burdens born by job creators."
