Opinion: Thriving communities embrace economic mobility

November 18, 2017 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: not sure

The grim statistics tell the story. Economic mobility, the ability to move from a low income to a middle or higher income, is stagnant or falling in Atlanta and many American cities, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research’s 2015 Equality for Opportunity Project Study. The best predictor of whether a person will be poor, middle class or wealthy is whether that person’s parents were poor, middle class or wealthy.

In Atlanta, according to the NBER, a person who grows up in a family whose income is below the poverty line has less than a five percent chance of […]

Achieving Skill Mobility in the ASEAN Economic Community: Challenges, Opportunities, and Policy Implications

November 18, 2017 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: bad


Despite clear aspirations by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to create an effective framework to facilitate movements among skilled professionals within the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) by December 2015, progress on the ground has been slow and uneven.

The challenge ASEAN Member States face is threefold. First, the complexity of the qualifications recognition process essentially discourages professionals who move within the region from having their professional and academic credentials assessed and recognized. Second, professionals face restricted access to the ASEAN labor market due to national-level barriers such as constitutional provisions reserving particular occupations for nationals, and complex and […]

KINGSTON – The Pro Chancellor of the University of the West Indies (UWI), Sir Hilary Beckles says there is need for both a new style International Monetary Fund (IMF) and a 21st century post-IMF Caribbean economy.

Writing in the Friday edition of the Jamaica Observer, one day after the Washington-based financial institution hosted the sixth IMF High level Caribbean forum here, Sir Hilary said that the elements of the regional dialogue are coming together and might constitute at this time a blurred image of an alternate Caribbean economy.But he wrote that they are calling […]

The Real Source of China’s Soft Power

November 17, 2017 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: not sure

The Real Source of China

Chinese soft power is not measured by blockbuster films, but by the appeal of its development model.

I can imagine that American studio executives and foreign policy wonks breathed a sigh of relief when the 2016 film The Great Wall (directed by Zhang Yimou) “bombed” at the global box office. Representing a co-production between China and the United States through the Wanda Group’s recent acquisition of Legendary Entertainment, The Great Wall was meant to bring together American film making and marketing skills with Chinese capital in order to showcase China to the world. Starring Hollywood stars Matt Damon and Willem […]

Joseph Haubert A recap of new City Hall leadership’s meeting with the Downtown Dallas Inc. Board.

In what Downtown Dallas Inc. (DDI) does every day, building the center of our city, public-private partnerships are imperative. DDI was founded nearly 60 years ago on this principle, bringing together the voice of the private sector interested in the social, economic, cultural, and environmental health of downtown to work with public sector to advance both large scale projects, as well as everyday stewardship of the urban experience. Whether luring Amazon’s HQ2, growing AT&T’s global headquarters, or creating new programs to activate vacancy and […]

What’s the Role of Elite Nonprofits in Fighting Inequality in Pittsburgh?

November 17, 2017 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: not sure


“Puzzling” by John Hritz November 15, 2017; The Pitt News

Here’s what we know about economic and social inequality: We won’t social work our way out of it. We won’t educate our way out of it. We won’t invent our way out of it. Economic and social inequality is rooted in the structure of economic and social relationships. Measures to ameliorate the conditions of the lower classes will, at best, result in an occasional exceptional individual escaping his or her inherited status. Therefore, Mayor Bill Peduto’s call for elite nonprofits in Pittsburgh to combat inequality will require more than […]

Does the Family Self-Sufficiency Program Work? National Evidence May Not Tell the Whole Story

November 17, 2017 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: bad


Although many have expressed legitimate concerns about Secretary Carson’s goal of moving people out of US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) assistance, the reality is that, for a subset of HUD-assisted renters, that should be our common goal. Nearly 2 million households with HUD assistance have a head of household who is of working age and has no work-limiting disabilities. With sufficient labor market conditions and marketable skills, this sizeable minority of rental assistance recipients could earn their way out of needing a housing subsidy (or, in the short term, needing as much of one). Given that, […]

Imagining the post-IMF Caribbean economy

November 17, 2017 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: not sure


Circumstances are rapidly maturing that are demanding our conception of the need for both a new style International Monetary Fund (IMF) and a 21st century post-IMF Caribbean economy.

The elements of the regional dialogue are coming together. They might constitute at this time a blurred image of an alternate Caribbean economy, but they are calling attention to the growing regional interest in a serious focus upon economic sustainability and resilience, and nation building — phase two.

The growth in social and economic inequality across the region in recent decades under IMF tutelage has been identified as a major concern. The […]
