A Matter of ImportanceeBook - 2012
By 2013, the American economy is sliding under the rising tide of over spending and increasing indebtedness. Five years following the 2008 bursting of the great consumer bubble, the country is dangerously over-leverage and under-employed. Unable to balance spending with earned income, the United States is becoming aware of the what the true costs associated with the off-shoring of so many of its higher paying manufacturing jobs, might have been. Concluding the restoration of the economy is dependent on re-establishment of the relative competitiveness of manufacturing in America, Sentinels designate that restoration of manufacturing employment has to become the critical test by which historical and proposed programs are evaluated. Understanding the relative costs of production are determine by the total of seven separate categories of expenses, of which direct labor costs only represents one segment, the Sentinels set about to determine what needs to be changed. Well entrenched programs favoring foreign oil production, domestic power generation, the American labor movement, inadequate job training, corporate taxation, and increasing costs associated with growing regulations, need to be questioned. The Sentinels' "Employ America" requires them to divide the challenges into separate segments, with each one assume responsibility for its successful resolution. The story told through the evolving lives of the principal players on both sides of the ensuing conflict, unfolds over four continents. Follow the events in the lives of the next generation, as they pursue their objectives. Romance, disappointment, peril, trust, betrayal, hidden, prospects for success are never very far away.
