Talent Finance: An Interview with Sheila Bair

This month we launch Talent Finance, an initiative that promotes a public-private approach to how we invest in talent. One key to successfully making this happen, according to Sheila Bair, founding director of The Volcker Alliance, is to "align educational training with labor force needs."

I read in the journal that the chamber is contributing to vulnerable democrats in districts won by Trump. That's no way to build and support a pro business Congress. We all know there are no pro-business Dem's except when they have their hand out during elections. Don't you know those same hands will be reaching into our pockets come January?!
All online classes of foreign students with visas.... Should be in their countries doing the online classes... United States teachers need to teach the American value to teach American history the real American history not the left-liberal Looney history that they are trying to indoctrinate our children with.
