What should CRDC’s policy focus be?

by Maarten de Kadt,                                       

Last week’s New York Times may have given us a clue. On Tuesday it published an essay entitled “Healthcare and Profits, a Poor Mix.” The final paragraph contained the following words: “Improving the delivery of social services… may be possible without increasing the burden on American families, simply by removing the profit motive from the equation.” We have not looked at health care and health care delivery recently. Our local hospitals have been closed (St. Vincent’s by bad management and the others by Superstorm Sandy). The single payer option and Obama Care’s implementation should be on our agenda.

With the nation’s current state of stagnation increased profits often means lower wages. Community Board 4 (our local board) recently passed a resolution focusing on good jobs and safe working conditions within new local projects. For a long time now my Comments on Economics have been focusing on spending money to improve the city’s and the nation’s infrastructure as a way of increasing jobs. Of course improved infrastructure is no small task. Bridges and roads need maintenance. Our electrical distribution network needs modernization. The city storm defenses need improvement. Sewers need attention. And spending on infrastructure provides jobs in an economy desperately needing them. Another of CRDC’s focus it should be on the jobs issue. With it most likely will be a focus on infrastructure reconstruction.

There’s a lot of work for us to do. What issues do you think should be included in CRDC’s focus?

I wouldn't sell him, if he gets bteter then why not keep him until he reaches his potential and builds up a reputation, that way if someone decides to bid you'll score for more money and if not you're stuck with a world class right back.
