Improving Fiduciary Infrastructure: Retaining and Retraining Essential Resources
Our government can learn a lot from the disciplined studies of leadership and finance. A small business has to be creative in its use of resources not discarding valuable ones but find a new use for them in a market shift. They have to have a protective posture to improve the relationship they have with those they serve.
Over the past few years our governments blind spot in these two areas has it eliminating valuable well trained personal and allowing an imposing responsibility on those they serve. The burden of a responsibility they should be addressing not ignoring or diverting.
Instead of paring down our military we should utilize those trained personnel, not discard them. They could be used to help the war on identity theft. Our citizens should not have to fight this form of terrorism on their own and our businesses should not be negatively impacted by this kind of theft. It has a negative impact on our countries financial infrastructure, which trickles down to all of us.
I have seen many good men and women who have sacrificed and committed themselves to the service of our great Nation be rewarded not by support and validation but only by being given a pink slip. When those in power are being short sighted in what to do with highly trained, interested, vested, loyal and devoted people people interested in old fashion but enduring values of God, Country, and Selflessness we have a critical lack of intellectual capital making these decisions. We don’t need to push our soldiers out or find busy work for them, we have serious work we can divert them toward.
Instead of forcing a heroic group out in an unheroic exit (present drawing downs are more like cold calculated unethical corporate downsizing) we ought rather be providing them the admiration and respect they deserve. In place of “eliminating these resources” let’s look at alternative utilizations that could help strengthen our communities, countries, and citizens.
“Identity theft is a serious crime where your personal information has been hijacked by an imposter who intends to commit fraud in your name. They obtain false lines of credit and rack up significant debt in your name. With a stolen identity, someone might hide behind your name in a legal matter, leaving you with a false criminal record. Identity fraud is a major problem, and it happens more often than you might think. According to the Internal Revenue Service, 2.7 million people had their identities stolen in 2014.” @TransUnion
The use of the word highjack and my use of the word terrorist are not overstated. This type of terrorism is chipping away at America’s foundational financial infrastructure. Our government’s answer, to put the onus and the responsibility back on its citizens and companies is unacceptable. This is criminal, we have the resources to address this problem and if we do it we will improve our Country’s financial stability as we battle against terrorism. Along with recruiting our military personnel we have to create laws that make this type of activity punishable to the extent it deserves – as acts of terrorism.
The problem is that politicians are only representing their own interest and the power and money is attracting the wrong people. We need those with innovative and critical thinking minds and morale virtue. This is not a difficult solution to come up with – reroute to get essential resources, instead of forcing out one of our most prized and invaluable participants in Liberty – Our American Soldiers. Directing them to a top priority in an area that is impacting millions of its tax paying citizens and businesses should be a top priority.
Please consider copying pasting and sending this to your representatives and those in the media who could support and advance this solution.
To those who are more accustom to my writing as a vehicle for personal improvement there are lessons within this that apply to your personal development and to your business. Don’t ignore Improving Fiduciary Infrastructure: Retaining and Retraining Essential Resources will keep any entity viable.
