By Phil Noble
President, SC New Democrats
Charleston, SC

SC Rep. Nikki Haley just released her jobs plan. These 10 words do not appear in it:

1.    Agriculture – our largest industry.
2.    Tourism – our second largest industry.
3.    Technology – the largest driver of economic growth in the past 20 years.
4.    Computer (or Internet) – nifty little thing that is used for most every phase of economic activity.
5.    Capital – as in venture capital that’s needed for start-ups, the creator of small business jobs.
6.    Global – everything and everyone else in the world.
7.    Exports – the stuff we sell in the global marketplace to make money.
8.    International – as in international business, the way we make the money from the world.
9.    Green – as in green jobs, 21st century jobs that save money and can’t be shipped overseas.
10.    Rural – as in rural development, what 1 million of us (23.4 percent of South Carolinians) desperately need.

It’s a great 19th century jobs plan.
