Fast Company: America's Supply Problem   

Marty Wolf Writes For Entrepreneur Publication   

  

  

In a recent issue of Fast Company, Marty Wolf remarks that he U.S. doesn't have a jobs problem; it has excess capacity for producing goods and services compared to global demand. How to fix it? Lower taxes would mean more MFast Company Image 10-6-11&A, which would mean less supply, and more jobs.

 

Marty goes on to write, "The proposal for a one-time corporate tax break enabling U.S. corporations to repatriate their foreign earnings has a greater chance of stimulating private sector job growth. The current tax rate is 35% and that explains why Apple has about $12 billion parked outside the U.S. right now; Google about $17 billion; Microsoft about $29 billion; and Cisco about $40 billion. The specific proposal is to temporarily lower the tax rate to about 5%."

 

He adds, "So while elected officials on both sides of the aisle are talking about creating jobs, few are talking about the reality of how long it's going to take. Government stimulus can create short-term jobs right away, but it does little to solve our long-term oversupply problem. Tax relief on U.S. foreign earnings would bring home capital that can be put to work to solve our long-term problem of oversupply, but it will not create jobs overnight.
