GLOBAL LESSONS: PUTTING AMERICA TO WORK – Airs Sunday 8:00PM – 9:00PM and 11:00PM (Monday 2:00AM)
The 2012 U.S. election will pivot, in large part, on perceptions of the status of the economic recovery, which most people view in terms of improved jobs numbers. Economic experts now predict it may take as long as 60 months for America to return to pre-2008 employment levels. CNN’s and Time’s Fareed Zakaria says a “patchwork system of job training programs” are why the U.S. has 3.5 million unfilled jobs and takes an in-depth look at public-private partnerships and industrial policies in Germany, the Netherlands, Charlotte, NC, Chicago, IL, and Albany, NY, for models of job engines. Zakaria interviews Philips CEO Frans van Houten, Dr. Alain Kaloyeros, CEO of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at The University at Albany-SUNY, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Frits Van Paasschen, president & CEO of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., discusses growth prospects for perhaps the ultimate “un-outsourcable” American industry: tourism.
