just six years since its founding the clinton global initiative and members improved the lives of 300 million people in 180 countries. their focus is turning to the home front to revive the united states struggling economy. joining us live from chicago information president bill clinton who is former chairman of the globclinton initiative. this is a turn towards the home front this year with the clinton global initiative. with the jobless rate above 9%, i'm just wonder if you're surprised at this point in the recovery that we haven't made more progress? a little bit. we've got some assets that aren't fully tapped, potential to really rebuild the manufacturing sector and, you know, manufacturing jobs have been growing more rapidly than normal in the last few months and i think you'll see more of that if we do the right things. there's lots of money out there in banks and corporations that haven't yet committed either to their shareholders or employees or to overseas investment. but there are also some fairly significant barriers to resuming growth and some of them are even psychological. what we're trying to do is find the areas of opportunity that exist now. just assuming no significant changes in public policy that could lead to more investment and more rapid job growth. i realize that there's not a silver bullet that will really come in and change the entire situation, but if you had one issue that you could focus in on, one thing you could change to try and get job growth back on track, what would it be? well, i have to answer two. one is immediate. there needs to be an immediate focus on the 3 million jobs, probably now more than 3 million jobs posted people have offered them for hire and those jobs are only being filled at half the rate of previous recessions even though the unemployment rate shyer and even higher because a lot of people in part time jobs that want full time jobs. a lot of people top out for looking for jobs. they are not in the statistics any more. that's how we started yesterday, focusing on that. what can we do to make it easier for employers to find people and to receive assistance to train them on their own before they have to make a commitment to hire them full time. i think if we can cut that gap we can hire another million people, lower the unemployment rate, increase the confidence and get investment going. the other thing i think we can do in a hurry is to provided equate financing to be repaid by building owners from savings and utility rates to retrofit buildings. the unemployment rate in construction is twice the national unemployment rate and in some places three times and you can't build houses and not many commercial buildings being built. so we ought to put these people network retrofitting the buildings and let the owners who themselves are cash-strapped pay it back from their utility savings. all you have to do is work out the financing. there's four or five ways you can do that. that can put a lot of people to work in a hurry. when we spoke with michael dell from dell computers he said one thing that's frustrating you can't find the highly educated workforce for jobs they would like. first what you can do immediately addresses that, but how quick of a fix can you have for a situation especially when people don't have — go ahead. i think you have to break down the problem there. first of all, there are the relatively modest skill requirement jobs. and in that case, you know, the employers may say well if i hire this person i'm not really sure.
