Ten-Point Plan to Create US Jobs

The Competitive Enterprise Institute released a 10-point plan to create US jobs in response to President Obama's jobs speech last week. Suggestions include:

  • Repeal financial "reform" laws, such as Dodd-Frank and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, that are causing economic uncertainty and dissuading businesses from expanding, investing and hiring for new projects.

  • Permanently withdraw proposed or recently finalised federal environmental regulations that are forcing existing power plants and energy-intensive industrial plants to close and blocking investment in new plants.

  • Reform federal labour laws to stimulate hiring in the private sector.

  • Unlock American natural resource production on federal lands and expedite environmental permitting of natural resource projects on federal, state and private lands.

  • Raise or eliminate the cap on credit unions lending to the small businesses of their members.

  • Freeze antitrust regulation.

  • Modernise America's intellectual property laws to reflect the industries and technologies of the 21st century.

  • End taxpayer subsidies for wasteful, inefficient "green" jobs.

  • Liberalise network and infrastructure industry regulation.

  • Streamline the visa process for highly-skilled immigrant workers in special occupations.
