Thanks to the just launched “Missed Jobs Report” on the Engage America web site. This report will use “crowdsourcing” to build a database of what until now has been the unseen job destruction caused by government policies. Engage America is a nonprofit organization that seeks to engage the public discourse on several core issues facing the American people, including the federal budget deficit, tax policy and Social Security.
Thus, the true potential of the Missed Jobs Report goes beyond the reporting of job losses to demonstrating that crowdsourcing can be used to change the way we evaluate government policies and to increase the accountability of regulators and elected officials.
By so doing, it may reduce the power of special interests and the advocates of ever larger government, and thereby help restore balance to the debate over regulatory and tax policies.
