Unemployment is a situation where people willing to have a job (not a lazy) but they unable to get a job (no job available), which caused by competition (globalization) and complexity (poverty, crime, education), and can be solved by government (protection & prioritization) and people (create an opportunity)
Employment is protection within competition
I have opinions about risk, especially for technology, project and operation. And risk is complex, we should not think risk as country risk or market risk only. It can be political risk, it can be knowledge risk (that many things we did not understood). Well keep on learning, experimenting and be productive.
Why microfinance (micro banking, Mandiri Mikro) is successful, but why microenergy generation (electrical, energy) doesn’t work?
Micro (Microfinance, Microbanking, Electricity Microgeneration)
Micro Generation, UK Energy Act 2004 <50 KW
For example the study commissioned by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) of the U.K. from the Energy Saving Trust has suggested that 30%–40% of the U.K.’s electricity demands could be met through microgeneration technologies by 2050, with combined heat and power (CHP) leading the way, followed by micro-wind and photovoltaic (PV)
All things is related, connected, interdepending.

Is it perfectly planned or just destinied
Honestly, I dont know how I should start. For the latest 32 years, what society tell me about Indonesia is wrong. Not a big wrong actually, It’s like mis-interpreted. Its Mintzberg or Porter, Its emergent or deliberated.
1945-1965, Soekarno Period
International Relation: Was dutch assets nationalization right? Was Soekarno a japan traitor? How Indonesian got Independence? How is Japan roles? What happen during 1955 Africa Asian Conference? Does Soekarno understand about economic? Do we play it right at that time?
1965-1998, Soeharto Period
Should Sukarno blamed for what he has done? Will we invade East Timor if did not get support from west? What happened during Japan Post-War economic miracle (1950-1975), What happen during Four Asian Tiger Period (1960s-1990s), Miracle Han River (1962-2007)
India 1991 (Global Politic:USSR, Oil:Iraq Crisis, Political Crisis: Indira)
Indonesia 1998 (Financial Crisis, Soeharto Fall)
Having a port is important. By having a good port (deep water etc), then it easy to market the product to overseas or other area. Just what Jokowi plan to have a sea toll. But having a strong industrial complex also far more important than having a port.
I have been in one of LNG Manufactur company in Sulawesi and they built their own infrastructure Port & Highway to access their production site. So will the development of port increase economy in that area? Well I don’t think will worked that way.
The key is to prioritize your budget properly. It should be focused on something better first. For example, put on the education or human resources development.
But it require a long time process? is there any of us that think in long term scale now? come on be realistic and pragmatic first. The first step of course, gain a power, create a stability, and move.
The question that always being asked by professor in economy or international business class is: What should the government/institution do first. What should the money being allocated first.
Say no to economist, say no to government, say yes to politican and business man

I don’t understand this, why there are so many things that I did not understand. There is a simple things that difficult to decide. There is always polarization of everything from Democracy vs Socialism, Mixed Economy vs Command Economy, Jokowi vs Non Jokowi.
So work as lecturer or consultant?
Become career woman or house wife?
Live in big city or small city?
Buy a house or buy a car first?
You can’t have everything. You need to choose. You need to choose and work it out.
To reduce weight for example, you need to choose between exercise everyday or reduce the food intake. I have been in a situation that I can reduce my weight by exercise everyday. And I also can reduce by reduce food intake. Both of option can be worked. And we should not confuse if we found that two options, it’s never be a contradiction.
Options is not a contradiction. Polarization is the root of problem of everything we face. And the foundation of polarization is politics. Is someone want something. Someone that greedily want something.
Is not about the democracy vs socialism. Both of them can succeed or can fail. The question is are you willing to make a change or not.
Forget about jargon
No, its politic first. decide first.
That’s why I understand now. Politic is most important factor. Once you have a strong position then no need a jargon anymore.
Forget the jargon, don’t let the jargon dictate you.
What is unemployment?
Unemployment or jobless, is a situation where you, where we willing to find a job, but unable to get the job.
What is the cause of unemployment?
Its because there is no job available, there is no economic growth, there is no new business opportunity establish.
What what is the solution?
Create a new job, stimulate the market, encourage people, private sector, investment, everything to roll the economy.
If the solution is easy, then why it is fail?
Spain and Greece 25%, Italy 12%, France 10% even China 4%, Indonesia 5%, Malaysia 3%, Thailand 1%, Why UK & US have 5%. Well it’s statistically speaking, the truth we’ll never know, there are a lot of black economy in every country.
What is the “root cause” of this problem
To understand this, we need to know the root cause of this problem? because there are someone out there, making bad decision that makes no job available to us.
1. In regard to hyper competition and globalization a small mistake in political and economy decision would make a job dissapear. A fall like domino effect.
2. In regard to changing market, a rigid and unflexible act will ruin everything. For example the labor law that doesn’t support the market.
So, what is the solution?
1. Protection, for example, in our case: someone make a decision that you need to apply for Tier 5 VISA to get an employment in UK. The labor in the country need to be protected.
2. Flexible, the government need to be flexible in analyzing the situation. The government should know the challenge that face and the capacity of their people to overcome the challenge
Life is a full of paradox of everything. Education for example, why we need it? of course, to know things better, so we could do it better, faster. We learn to ride a bike, so we can go to another place easier and faster. We learn how to do a web programming, so we can create our own website, sell something in the website. However, sometimes we feel that what we’ve learned is not enough. Riding bicycle for example, by the time you realize you can ride it, you need to understand how to brake, understand how to repair wheel.
Study is interesting, because it open our perspective on the new things. But every time we one step forward, there would be a one step backward. For example, if you learn to do business, and in some stages you fail, loss a number of money. Then you going back to study again, on the importance of risk and never put all the eggs in one basket. But at that time you’re getting smarter, actually, you are one step backward, by afraid of making a decision in business – because to many consideration.
So everything has a paradox, everything has a consequences and responsibilities. Just if you’re ten times richer and ten you mus ten times saving better. Imagine a child that doesn’t know anything, he can sleep easily in the night. Compare to smart person that knows everything, he might worry about many things.
So how to fight this paradox?
Education, Sport, Love everything has a paradox. And to avoid this paradox which sometimes contradict, you need to rest. Forget about it. It’s all man-made concept. So calm down.
One of the reason I study, is to know the importance of definition. Once you know about the definition, you begin to understand the component of the concept. Energy for computer for example, you start to understand the CPU, VGA, Monitor, moreover you understand about Database, Networking, Programming. However you will the contradiction begin as you realize that there is to many things, for even a single things, and then you will try to give up. Contradiction at it’s best.
