Jobenomics, the book, deals with economics of small business and job creation. The Jobenomics National Grassroots Movement’s goal is to facilitate an economic environment that will create 20 million net new middle-class jobs within the next ten years. Download Overview at Jobenomics Overview – 27 June 2016.

Research. Jobenomics produces a series of comprehensive reports including quarterly employment (Jobenomics U.S. Employment Analysis – Q2 2016 – 31 July 2016) and unemployment reports (Jobenomics U.S. Unemployment Analysis – Q2 2016 – 6 August 2016) that address U.S. labor force, emerging business trends and economic security. Jobenomics also lectures on economic, industry and policy challenges and opportunities related to job and business creation. For example, a major challenge involves the rapidly growing contingent workforce (part-time and independent workers) that is currently 40% of the U.S. employed labor force (U.S. Contingent Workforce Challenge – 4 April 2016), and the associate workforce education/training challenge to prepare the next generation of American workers (Workforce Education versus Training Challenge – 1 Aug 2016).
Key Focus Areas. While Jobenomics addresses big business and government employment, its principal focus is on highly-scalable small and self-employed businesses that employ 80% of Americans and have produced 80% of all new jobs this decade. Women, minorities, new workforce entrants and the growing cadre of other poor represent populations with the highest need and potential.

National-Level Initiatives. Jobenomics developed two detailed reports (several hundred pages) involving emerging technologies and systems related to the Energy Technology Revolution (ETR, Energy Technology Revolution – 18 June 2015) and the Network Technology Revolution (NTR, Network Technology Revolution -19 Nov 2015) that could create 20 million new American jobs within a decade given proper leadership and support. The ETR plan addresses emerging technologies, processes, systems and services across the entire energy spectrum for electrical power generation, transportation, storage and energy-related services. The NTR is characterized by a “perfect storm” of advanced technologies including cloud computing, semantic webs, ubiquitous computing, advanced networks, machine learning, robotics, credentialing, Internet-of-Things and artificial intelligence. The NTR plan addresses America’s transition from a traditional to a digital economy and the transformational impact that the NTR will have on the economy, businesses and the labor force.
Programs. Jobenomics is now working directly with community leaders to develop business and job creation initiatives to mass-produce small businesses and jobs. Emphasis is placed on demographics with the greatest need and potential—women, minorities and youth. Jobenomics New York City, Delaware and Baltimore City initiatives are underway with other city and state efforts in progress including North Carolina and it major cities. These community leaders are working with other community, government and business leaders to develop detailed plans, with actionable milestones, for citizens who desire meaningful jobs or want to start a business.
