All aspects of America 2029 are designed with specific needs in mind:
  • Financial Security. If costs like medical insurance go up rapidly, outside of my control, how can I plan for and control my future? My savings might be wiped out overnight by something outside of my control.
  • Job Security. With rapid technology development and job outsourcing (often overseas), jobs continue to be eliminated rapidly. What would I do if I lost my job, and there was virtually no hiring (since the number of unemployed workers far exceeded the number of open positions)?
  • Meaningful Investment Returns. Traditional investment strategies involved stocks, bonds, and some form of "cash" that gave interest. For a select few, real estate and gold provided solid returns, supplementing the more general forms of investment. Now, dire predictions for stocks and bonds, virtually zero interest for cash, and volatile real estate markets put these strategies at risk, forcing investors to ask if there or more meaningful strategies. Companies selling gold offer their alternative, but that's a suspect investment as well. As a currency substitute, it has no intrinsic value. Its value stems from its relative rarity. Silver, however, dropped in price when its commercial demand dropped. Gold is subject to similar risk, as substitutes are found for gold in jewelry and commercial applications.
  • Surviving the Ocean of Big Data. The world is now swimming in an ocean of data. It's enough to drown any business that can't handle the volume of data. Instead of dealing with thousands, millions, or billions of data items, we are now dealing with trillions of data items. Welcome to the world of "Big Data."
  • Locating Qualified Workers. Even as companies are automating and eliminating jobs in bulk, they are creating new jobs that often go unfilled, due to the lack of qualified workers. Such employment bottlenecks can lead to significant lost revenue.
  • Locating Consumers. If the number of unemployed workers continues to rise, including the permanently unemployed, then where are companies going to find consumers for their products and services?
  • Fixing Government. Democrats and Republicans alike are recognizing that the 2016 elections are a clear demonstration of how America's current system of government is permanently broken. What can be done to fix it, before it's too late?
  • Getting Our Voices Heard. If government is not going to listen to cries for job security, affordable health care, lower taxes, smaller government, etc., then what can we do? How can I myself have my voice heard?
  • Surviving and Thriving as Technology Constantly Changes. If technology keeps changing faster and faster, how can I afford to buy the technology and figure out how to use it? Won't I get further behind all my tech-savvy competitors, coworkers, and fellow consumers?
