Take Back Ireland

Manifesto on Job Creation

Firstly,we find it hard to fathom how so many parties are claiming to envisage creating 100,00 jobs, when firstly they seem incapable of identifying the industries/area where this event will happen, secondly that the convenience of the number 100,000 was not highlighted to be the same number the ESRI offered when calculating emigration from Ireland this year.

In the last few weeks it has been highlighted that the world is heading towards a food shortage and the population will reach 9 billion. Like a smart economy we see the need for smart agriculture.
Research centres like Teagasc and third level institutions should become directly involved with leading technology players that could sit down with the IFA and Department of Agriculture and look at ways of increasing productivity and future crops that would be best suited to our climate and have high potential for export. The possibility of bringing these organisations together to brainstorm could reap long-term benefits for the future of Irish farming. Farmers that are struggling to survive should be helped with initiatives to help them streamline costs and embrace future farming concepts to increase the possibility of survival. All eyes should be on the Chinese markets right now and products and natural resources that they are showing strong demand for should be targeted. Maize has been embraced by many farmers and become a very visible crop on the Irish landscape in recent years, it is well-known to be a staple diet in many African countries. Sugar production has to be looked at again as prices surge on the commodity markets, we congratulate the people from the Carlow plant that was closed, who are regrouping and trying to re-establish a manufacturing facility again. These are the markets we should be looking at.

Green energy projects that are offering employment but were hindered by John Gormley and his Department must be revisited and made a priority. We call on these projects to be fast tracked and all red tape dealt with in a swift manner. The people are our priority and the people need jobs. The Greens agenda was in direct conflict with progress and it is a period of our history we must never revisit. One man’s ego should never again be allowed to provide a stumbling block to jobs.

The construction industry needs to come together and those over the industry need to form a panel tasked with sourcing contracts abroad. A new Irish company should be formed and every project with a high employment requirement should be tendered for across the euro zone. We can’t argue that the expertise is not there and it would be a shame to see people with so many skills not offered a chance of utilizing their skills. We have to accept that this industry is on the floor here and there are a lot of people who would willingly travel anywhere to secure work. The organisation needs to create a pool of workers willing to travel on short notice and they should receive assistance with flights, work permits, accommodation to get them off the ground. With the right people overseeing this project it could become viable and all necessary equipment is probably lying in yards and liquidation sale yards. It should be viable to do deals to source what would be needed with the application of some common sense by those involved.

The gaming industry needs to be one of our priorities and is an area already starting to blossom. Third level institutions that provide relevant courses to this industry should be assisted in establishing partnerships with gaming companies. Encouragement to assist in creating a highly skilled  workforce has to be actively pursued by the Department of Education. Our corporation tax rate should be an attractive proposition for them to establish bases here also and become in course formation and research.

Forestry has to be put on the forefront of the agenda for providing a profitable resource for the next generation. It is one of the highest yield industries in the world right now. As politicians have been busy serving self-interest, all activity to increase efforts to promote and encourage entry into this industry would be welcomed as an atonement for neglecting this industry.

The councils can no longer stand idly by and just expect to collect rates from business owners. The current climate is one that is anti job creation and traders are experiencing difficult trading conditions. They should establish a database of new landlords with viable properties to rent at realistic prices. Many developers have properties lying idle and deals should be established where the council can offer these with preferable rates to encourage the demise of present landlords that have lost touch with reality but not greed. The council should also negotiate on behalf of businesses trapped in rental agreements that are not viable in the current climate. If this issue was tackled in such a way, more people may be encouraged to start-up and thus create jobs.

We also hope that people will see in our other policies, that once cronyism is eliminated and that the financial profligacy of the previous governments is tackled, thus more money can be harvested back into the relevant areas the finances are most needed and support employment for these departments.

    Game industry value chain

    Ben Sawyer of Digitalmill observes that the game industry value chain is made up of six connected and distinctive layers:
    Capital and publishing layer: involved in paying for development of new titles and seeking returns through licensing of the titles.
    Product and talent layer: includes developers, designers and artists, who may be working under individual contracts or as part of in-house development teams.
    Production and tools layer: generates content production tools, game development middleware, customizable game engines, and production management tools.
    Distribution layer: or the “publishing” industry, involved in generating and marketing catalogs of games for retail and online distribution.
    Hardware (or Virtual Machine or Software Platform) layer: or the providers of the underlying platform, which may be console-based, accessed through online media, or accessed through mobile devices such as the iPhone. This layer now includes non-hardware platforms such as virtual machines (e.g. Java or Flash), or software platforms such as browsers or even further Facebook, etc.
    End-users layer: or the users/players of the games.[4]

    UK video game industry practices
    The UK industry is the third largest in the World in terms of developer success and sales of hardware and software by country alone but fourth behind Canada in terms of people employed.[21] The country houses 23 of the top 100 successful studios in the world.[22] In recent years many of the studios have become defunct or sold on to other rival companies such as LittleBigPlanet developer, Media Molecule[23] and Codemasters.[24] Though the country houses many of the world’s most successful franchises such as Tomb Raider, Grand Theft Auto, Fable, DiRT and Total War, the country is trying to find its identity, with many of the games without any cultural influence coming from the UK, with most influence derived from North America.[citation needed]
    The country also goes without tax relief, which means most of the talented development within the UK may move overseas for more profit, along with parents of certain video game developers which would pay for having games developed in the UK.[25] Though in its current state it is large, at the rate the industry in the country is going it will lead to the country being moved down in the rankings and falling behind countries such as France and, recently overtook by, Canada.[21]
