As I have pointed out in other threads, I did not vote for a presidential candidate. And while I have a great deal of disdain for our current President-elect, I'd like to believe there is an opportunity here for some much needed changes.
An overhaul of our free-trade agreements. In general I am not in favor of free trade agreements. (I strongly opposed NAFTA, as an example.) My main reasons for opposing them is that they allow the off-shoring of our industry (taking away American jobs) while exploiting the cheap (and unprotected) labor of other countries.
Shifting our economy away from the financial sector towards the industrial sector. This would be a long, laborious process, and I don't see the establishment ever making this easy. Corporations continue to pursue ever-increasing profit margins (there is a twisted logic where anything less than an increase is considered a loss), and have found that that easiest way to achieve this is to focus more on financial markets and less on traditional manufacturing.
Close offshore tax loopholes, with no tax amnesty for corporations. This is a sensitive one, particularly the latter part. But corporations have been deferring their tax obligations, and continue to do, by offshoring income which, despite being "offshore", is invested back into our financial markets for profit and at taxpayers' expense. We should not have to bear the burden of corporate tax-dodging, nor should we allow offshored corporate income to be invested domestically.
(more to come, your suggestions are welcomed)
