Because of the Arab Spring and the world's overall economic situation, there may be an opportunity for a non-doctrinaire approach to creating jobs in some developing countries.
It is a good time to make an offer to do just that and to take my fifteen years' work in policy analysis from the academic arena into the governmental arena.
And, Barry, I can't be shy about it - need to get folks to listen somehow.
Below is my announcement that the McKeever Institute of Economic Policy Analysis [MIEPA] is available to provide legislation and policy analysis focusing on job creation for any interested country.
After 15 years in the development stage, MIEPA announces that it is available on a contractual basis to advise national governments on creating sound economic policies.
In today's world, economic growth is the critical part of national security and stability. The revolutions of the Arab Spring demonstrate that many populations will no longer tolerate an economic system which exploits them.
Now, many governments are unsure how to create a system which will create growth without exploiting the population.
MIEPA hereby offers a comprehensive assistance program which enables national governments to create an economic system which creates the maximum number of jobs in any society by combining the best parts of private, for profit firms with the best of governmental agencies. Employing primarily local citizens, the assistance program assures stability of the development program. We recognize explicitly that some of the policy recommendations we propose may be counter to existing interests which have strong influence; however, our recommendations will improve the country's economic performance even if some recommendations are ignored.
These policies are distilled from extensive studies of countless systems. While some countries have adopted MIEPA recommendations in an ad hoc procedure, for the first time, MIEPA professionals are available to work directly with economic development ministers and national legislatures to design specific economic systems.
QUALIFICATIONS OF MIEPA's FOUNDER
As founder and CEO of MIEPA, I have trained more than 200 specialists who have examined national economic systems and policies in 47 countries - ranging from revolutionary Tunisia and dictatorial Myanmar to the United States. The policy system studies can be read at: www.mkeever.com.
I am uniquely qualified for this work as my background combines extensive business experience with an academic background in economics of development. I have been a professional financial executive at a variety of profit and non-profit firms for many years. My book HOW TO WRITE A BUSINESS PLAN, Nolo Press, 10th ed., 2011, has helped thousands of entrepreneurs worldwide start new businesses. I have studied development issues in a variety of political systems since 1960 at the London School of Economics and Whittier College and applied those studies in developing MIEPA; as a Professor of Economics and Business Management at both the undergraduate and graduate levels since the 1970's I am well-qualified to work in both academia and business.
MIEPA's focus is on creating economic growth and job growth under any economic system. Its unique approach encompasses 34 specific economic policies and determines how each policy affects economic growth. Additionally, MIEPA specialists determine how the subject policies interact to create or hinder growth.
As a result of this experience I am qualified and able to train a national staff to propose legislation and regulation designed to maximize economic growth in both newly formed nations and well-established governments.
PROPOSALS TO CLIENT GOVERNMENTS
While each specific proposal will have unique characteristics, the overall methodology will be to review or propose legislation by examining the likely effects on job creation of any proposed law or regulation as well as the effects of existing legal framework. MIEPA analysts combine real world business experience with theoretical economic understanding. This provides a results driven process focused on real economic growth. The process produces an effective, job creating framework tailored for each specific environment - it is not a doctrinaire, one-size-fits-all approach.
After proposal acceptance, I plan to spend 90 to 180 days in country hiring people and establishing procedures for a legislative analysis unit. Once the unit is established and functioning, I will monitor and resolve questions via web. All specific proposals will be formally submitted by me until such time as the unit demonstrates its capability.
Specialists will include economics students fluent in English, who do not have to be graduates, and a small number of lawyers experienced in drafting legislation. Specialists in the unit will be primarily nationals of the client country; they will perform these analyses and recommendations in a timely and cost effective manner.
A six step process is envisioned:
Step 1: determine which existing policies need revamping by performing a policy analysis of MIEPA's policies plus the country's existing economic framework focusing on job creating effects and the cross effects of existing legislation;
Step 2: draft proposed legislation;
Step 3: vet bill by projecting likely outcomes of proposals;
Step 4: revise bill;
Step 5: present for adoption;
Step 6: monitor results and propose changes.
