Industries and Trends that are Reshaping America

Category: UncategorizedTags: , ,

With all the doom-and-gloom quotes flying around in these slow economic times, it is easy to get caught up focusing on the apparent downward spiral of life as we know it. However, these statistics and predictions do not always show the entire picture. There are industries that are, in fact, thriving in these trying times, providing economic growth and employment opportunity. The success of some of these industries is directly related to the failure of similar sectors, while others have held steady growth independent of market forces. From an employment perspective, it is important to take note of the industries in which there is still growth, should your job come into jeopardy. It is also beneficial to view the lagging economy as an opportunity to develop and integrate the up and coming technologies that will stand to make our systems more efficient and sustainable for years to come.

Flag makers are thriving.

Also, a viral emergent trend that is so green it gives off air is CONTAINER HOMES – I’m building a nature center in Ohio out of them.

The trans-oceanic shipping containers currently in use as part of global multinational market manipulation will be tasty housing, wonderful foundation forms etc and will help us house each other worldwide.

You see, liberty and freedom for corporations and governments and the loss of economic opportunity, the right to move away from tyranny or starvation for people is a gross violation of Human dignity and Human rights.

My name is John Hubertz, and I fight for Liberty, and for Freedom and Prosperity for my children, and yours – worldwide.

It surprises me that there’s nothing here about the tech sector which, in my particular field of marketing and social media, seems to be more than thriving. The sooner you pick up a computer and find something you love to talk about, you can eventually parlay that into a career. Not immediately, but almost certainly if you have or can learn good communication skills.

Excellent post, and I hope everyone pulls through this recession okay!

Social media is the mirage of pools of flowing water to thirsty folks struggling throught a desert. It is a very young and immature concept that can be and is increasingly being misused to its worst potential and purposes by debt collection companies, criminals and defrauders. Having great benefitial potential that might go wasted, it might never become what we intend due to its misuse holding the very seeds of its destruction.

There’s been a jump in movie theater attendance. Escaping the sad news of a bad economy by going to movies has a proven track record during prior tough times. Use of free and inexpensive ways to relieve stress & worry during economically challenging times often increase considerably.

I´m always curious to see how North Americans are dealing with this recession. A country that puts itself with Zero risk level for investments and are very arrogant while talking about the world, now have to see their economy as the main reason for this world recession (zero risk?) and lives like they were in a third country. I personaly don´t like to see anybody having problems with money, but I hope you americans begin to see that the world is more than just USA.
