    The reason is Uncertainty.

    The uncertainty has been created by our current administration.

    It is up to you to find the uncertainties or prove they do not exist.

    Please provide a reliable source, no blogs or political web sites.

    Good Luck

    Small and medium-sized businesses are not forming and/or not hiring.

    Aggressive lending to human-scale enterprises engaged in wealth creation is essential.

    Jobs require work not empty rhetoric. How much is made in America today and how much of the wealth created in the nation is pushed back into the country through infrastructure and other essential spending. The stimulus helped greatly, as it did during the last time the republicans destroyed the economy under Harding/Coolidge/Hoover. But do Americans today support fair wages and do Americans buy made here. Do corporations do the same? Next time you call support for something, ask where the person is, next time you buy something see where it is made. Consider Nike as an example, whose symbol is all over the Olympics this week, nothing made here except money to make them billionaires.

    Seems some things hardly change, the following quote testifies that the corporate reply is always the same. "The major problem the American economy confronted was a shortage of investment, and the 'Roundtable' merely wanted to make policy changes that would encourage new economic growth. The economic problems confronting the United States during the decade were largely the product of a hostile political climate: cut taxes and regulations and the economy would grow again."* That quote is from the seventies, the same empty business rhetoric has been with for a long time and the same people repeat it.

    'Sabotage: How the Republican Party Crippled America's Economic Recovery'
    "America paid a terrible price for the Republicans' intransigence. Whether they were deliberately damaging the economy or simply incompetent at making policy, the effect was clear: sabotage of the recovery, and a wound that would not heal for millions of American households." Daniel Altman Daniel Altman: Excerpt: Sabotage: How the Republican Party Crippled America's Economic Recovery

    *"Historian Phillips-Fein traces the hidden history of the Reagan revolution to a coterie of business executives, including General Electric official and Reagan mentor Lemuel Boulware, who saw labor unions, government regulation, high taxes and welfare spending as dire threats to their profits and power. From the 1930s onward, the author argues, they provided the money, organization and fervor for a decades-long war against New Deal liberalism—funding campaigns, think tanks, magazines and lobbying groups, and indoctrinating employees in the virtues of unfettered capitalism."

    Let's say you're a buinessman sitting on $1 million in business capital. Practically you have only 10 to 15 years before your would like to retire.

    You would like to grow that $1 million to allow for a somewhat more interesting and affluent retirement, but you also realize that you can retire fairly comfortably for the remainder of your active life with that $1 million.

    Do you risk investing that million in an economic climate in which tax and regulation policy is unknown? In an environment with a President who is so pro-big government and anti-idnividual initiative and anti-American business, you are fairly certain that will only get worse if he is re-elected? Do you risk all or most that you have in a hostile business environment? Risk your comfortable retirement in the midst of such uncertainty?

    Most Americans won't do that. Which is why American businessmen and women are sitting or many trillions of investment capital and are unwilling to risk it to a President and Congress that are determined to confiscate as much of it as they can get.

    If there was no uncertainty in business, we'd all be billionaires.

    Jobs are not being created because there is no demand for goods and services. There is no demand for goods and services, because the middle class has no money to spend. The middle class has no money to spend, because they have no jobs. We need jobs and it doesn't matter whether those jobs come from the private sector or government infrastructure projects, jobs are jobs. Once you start giving the middle class more paychecks, they turn around and spend those paychecks on rent, bills, groceries, clothing, etc...

    70% of the economy is due to consumer spending.

    The democrats have been very successful in burying the real reason business isn't creating jobs. Yes it is the uncertainty. Businesses won't invest in their own business because they don't know how much the government will take from them. That's why obama is attacking savings now. Those who save their money instead of spending it are the evil rich.

    Why aren't jobs being created? Well, actually, jobs have been created in the last 4 years. About 4 million of them, in fact (more than the previous administration was able to create in their 8 years). More and better quality jobs could be created, but businesses are sitting on record amounts of cash and have decided to do more with less in order to maximize their profits. Add to that GOP state legislatures cutting public sector jobs.
