    "In several weeks," Vass said, "the Obama administration will release a job creation plan that calls for a centralized National Infrastructure Bank to fund public sector economic projects. I am glad that my alternative private sector job creation plan, which features de-centralized competitive private market solutions in 350 metro regions, is getting wide reception among the world's academic community."

    Vass explained that Feser's path-breaking econometric model has an application for targeting capital investments to the most promising industrial value chains in each metro region. "The solution to the national economic crisis," said Vass, "is based upon technology commercialization in small firms, not in some massively centralized government spending plan."
