AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The city needs bike riders to cut down on congestion & keep the Economy growing. Corporations will continue in business along with everyone else on these routes. Commerce is maintained and those folks , not the bikers, should pay a 5-8% infrastructure project fee. Infrastructure, a public private partnership creates and maintains jobs!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Prestigious Universities hoard cash . Why? Money has become an end, their passion? Money can be used to fund students & employees. Wealth has increased 12% a year in hard times while working people struggle to survive. If each college took 8% of their endowment, it would be replenished. Therefore, $1 Billion provides 22,000people, $50,000 each. Do the math, NYU MED SCHOOL is now free. Who will follow in their footsteps? Promote education & innovation, &entrepreneurs for our future and we’ll all thrive! Your endowment will increase too. Win win #InvestInOurFuture.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce As we mourn George Floyd, I’m convinced this moment of pain will lead to progressive change in American Legislation. Thanks to the 18-29 yr olds, this moment is a Political movement. It’s not only equal justice we want, we want equal opportunity & pay with dignity, too! People & profits. Corporations who care about the Environment, society & Corporate Governance (ESG’s) #Don’t Stop!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Magical thinking will not rid us of this virus. Serious planning should replace opening too soon. We’re at war with a virus. Self Quarantine works. Masks , goggles & gloves help. This is a silent pathogen. 100’s of cases is too many, think who each person came in contact with? How many contacts do you have on a daily or weekly schedule? There is no herd immunity. We do know the elderly, African Americans, Hispanics , Indians & other groups are susceptible. How many deaths do we have to see & read about before we adhere to scientific guidelines?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Hoping for the best isn’t a plan. The Lower & Middle Classes need stimulus to survive the Summer & Fall. Not enough money has gone to the States and more money needs to go to potential workers & entrepreneurs ! My preference: QE for the Lower & Middle Classes. We’ve been stagnating for a decade.
