Can Obama Keep Those Jobs at Home?

Staying on top of the coverage of the meltdown, Business Week offers some analysis on the job creation program of president-elect Barack Obama and asks what the government should do--make Buy American legislation more stringent for example--to keep those jobs at home.

Couple this with the article on the "intangible" job market to determine where some of the new jobs may be created.

I do have a suggestion for you to help out your local economy: if you buy presents at Christmas, select items that were made locally or purchase gift cards that can be spent at local shops and businesses. Keep capital in your own local market and helps local small business owners, who are the major employers in every center.
