Obama Doesn't Create Jobs, Apple Does
Since the iPhone was introduced, more than half a million jobs have been created by application developers. Name the Obama economic policy that simulated that.
The U.S. has lost 4.3 million nonfarm jobs since 2009, but job growth has taken off in some surprising areas. Take app development. That seemingly constrained industry is having an outsized - and positive - impact on regions throughout the country.
A new study by the CTIA -- The Wireless Association and the Application Developer’s Alliance shows the mobile industry's regional impact. Specifically, the development, deployment and support of mobile apps.
The report, “The Geography of the App Economy,” states that, as of April, 519,000 new jobs have been created in the U.S. since 2007, when the iPhone was released, related to mobile app development. Those jobs are worth billions of dollars, creating value for tech communities in almost every state.
