The Importance of Asia & Therefore Asian Americans

                     (A) The Importance of Asia 
    Take one look at the 2 world maps below.   Most rational people will immediately recognize the importance of Asia, especially when its "GDP per capita average annual growth rate" is 2% higher than the world average.
(1) The World Divided Into 7 Regions, Each with a Population of 1 Billion

(2)  There are more people living inside this circle than outside of it


       (B) The Value of Asian Americans to the U.S.
    Think back to how America took advantage of its European immigrants to hook into the booming European economy in the 18th to 20th centuries! It is only natural that President Obama's "Rebalancing in Asia" will take advantage of America's 17 million Asian Americans in the 21s century to hook into the booming economy in Asia.   

    There are other factors which make Asian Ams even more important to U.S.  Most Asian Americans are highly educated.  The % of Asian Ams with Bachelor, Master, Professional, or Doctoral degree is 50% to 100 % higher than whites and even higher when compared with other races.  Most Asian Ams are known to be hardworking and law-abiding. The potential of how Asian Americans can be helpful to the U.S.
is limited only by one's imagination.  

    CONVERSELY, if Asian Ams adults face the lowest glass ceiling in work-places and their youths face the highest hurdle to enter first tier universities, will Asian Ams be as helpful to America and/or to President Obama's design to rebalance in Asia? 

   (C) Your Company, University, or Boss Aware of This?

     Forward this to your boss and friends.  Help your employer(s) to be aware and make use of this potential early.

Respectfully yours,
