The Global Middle Class
Thomas Friedman Shows the Need for New in This Job Opportunities Keynote

By: Romina S. Cortellucci (Star) Aug 2, 12

In this job opportunities keynote, author and New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman discusses why people should create companies and not jobs. Friedman believes there is a need to find rewarding and meaningful work for those in this hyperconnected world who have lost their positions as a result of being outsourced or digitized. There is economic opportunity to be had, but the focus should be on taking on something really big.

As an example, Friedman uses Oasis500, a Jordan-based early stage and seed investment company looking to help ambitious entrepreneurs start their own companies. The success of Oasis500 proves that Friedman is correct in saying that companies are growth stores, because they not only create jobs, but more importantly, spin off to launch scores of new businesses.
