Americans for the lives they want through new affordable flexible and personalized higher education options beyond high school to supplement the college path There need to be many ways to learn and train for the work of the future over the course of a lifetime Better matching Americans to opportunities through new credential systems that recognize an individual s abilities and by providing transparent and accessible information on skills required by employers Creating more jobs in America by linking American small businesses and entrepreneurs to the world of buyers for goods and services Creating growth potential for job creating small businesses by expanding access to capital and credit that is currently parked on the sidelines and Enabling many more career paths to well compensated work by using technology to deliver information to workers when they need it The daunting challenges of the new economy demand new ideas new types of leadership and new partnerships both

good jobs We have to step up and take responsibility if we want to prepare the workforce of tomorrow America s Moment shows us the steps that America must take to turn today s challenges into opportunities said co author Geoffrey Canada president of the non profit Harlem Children s Zone The digital technology revolution has given us incredible new tools for learning and ways to turn the corner on the financial anxiety and job insecurity that are haunting so many Americans We now have the ability to expand the number of pathways to learning and to rethink how every individual can be ensured of a pathway to opportunity and employment explained ASU President and co author Michael Crow With the technological tools available to us today we can advance flexible and personalized learning systems and generate new market ready credentials based on an individual s demonstrated knowledge America s Moment serves as an important reminder that we are stronger as a nation when everyone gets an equal chance to achieve success said co author Howard Schultz chief executive officer and chairman Starbucks With millions of Americans completely disconnected from the economy we need the leadership creativity and courage of the private sector working with communities and everyday citizens to create meaningful lifelong opportunities for all Technology and globalization are not our biggest challenge they are our greatest opportunity The world economy is set to more than triple in size in the next 15 years said Robert K Steel co author of America s Moment and CEO Perella Weinberg Partners Looking at the Internet alone there were a billion users in 2006 now there are three billion and growing American small businesses can use openings created by the Internet for much
