Top priorities for the American people for 2010 according to a survey from the Pew Research center.
We see from this that the economy and jobs, which I put in the same category is making the top. Terrorism is making it third. The failed attack and the new message from Bin Laden are not helping.
I don't know if people realize that to have a good economy and jobs, putting all your money in the military to fight terrorism is probably not the best way to go.
We also see that financial regulation is not following the top priorities. It seems that all the money that went into the banks and financial market that created the crisis we now have is not an important thing to regulate for the people!
I would put the priorities in that order to support the economy and jobs.
- Financial regulation at the top. Stop bailing out the people who create the problem. Start creating credits for infrastructure projects that are good for the economy and jobs.
- Energy is another important step, you need to rebuild an economy through more infrastructure projects, for this, you need more energy not less. Not the kind that need more money in then what it give you back, like wind and solar, I am talking about high density nuclear power.
