Welcome to 2014

By Zachary Alexander on

For a lot of very serious people, 2014 will be about the rollout of the Affordable Care Act. While those on the political right might chose to focus on how to extract concessions from President Barack Obama and 99 percent of the rest of the American people. While those on the left will concentrate on income inequality, post-globalists will be talking about ending America’s long decline and making the United States Economy work for everyone.

The body politic has been devoted to empowering big businesses for the better part of 70 years, which led to the development of a Globalism mindset. Many will probably find it hard to believe that the term globalization didn’t exist before the 1990’s. Before that, economic developers talked about liberal trade and executives talked multinational trade strategies. Now they talk about the dangers of state capitalism like the kind practiced in China.

Members of the Strategic Network for Industry Cluster Empowerment (SNICE) are encouraged to consider a Post-Globalism mindset for improving the competitiveness of lesser industrialized communities. A Post-Globalism mindset is a pro-growth belief system that stresses maximizing economic participation by all Americans over economic efficiency (i.e. profiteering) by large transnational corporations.

No matter where you stand politically, 2014 is shaping up to be a very significant year not just because it’s an election year. It’s the first time in a generation that the American people have a pro-growth strategy that they can use to stop the political right from squeezing working and middle class Americans. It’s about ending America’s long decline. So stay tuned to find out how to use Post-Globalism to help your community.
