Part XXXIII of the “EDEN America” Series

As also previously mentioned in this series, the great American waterway that is the Mississippi River runs through 10 states—Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. The Old Man River Renaissance (OMRR) suggested ventures can really energize the economic emancipation of the said 10 states. And some more. There are some 21 other states that shall benefit economically from the proposed OMRR economic development initiatives.

Rodney Mullins is a member of the “Tennessee Democrats and National Issues” Facebook Group. He commented in it, “And Tennessee ranks 1st in minimum-wage jobs!” Mr. Mullins made the comment after he shared the posting of Greg Hemstock, who presented an apparently-outdated list of the average salaries in the 50 states of the Union at this link.

The OMRR proposals will create not only millions of new jobs but also decent-paying and permanent livelihood opportunities as well. And the questions and worries of Rodney Mullins and Greg Hemstocks of the United States will be answered and resolved. And permanently at that — for as long as the United States and North America need potable water that is done by way of sustainable investment by Public-Private Partnerships (PPP).

As discussed in Part 25 of this series, If you Google the socioeconomic status of Tennessee, it ranks No. 29 overall among U.S. states based on 71 metrics across eight categories in 2019. In healthcare quality, it ranks No. 23, in healthcare access, it ranks No. 37, and in public health, No. 43. For inquisitive readers, please read the references cited by the U.S. News.

“Now that apparently the “BBB” initiative of the Biden Administration is not going anywhere, perhaps The White House may consider astutely the proposals stated in this series, as discussed in the 32 earlier parts of it.”

Years ago, Tennessee was ranked economically supposedly among the 50 states as No. 40. Now it is ranked No. 13 — as described in the classification of “Rich States, Poor States.”.

In this other site, the overall economic-performance rankings (in parenthesis) of the 10 states where the Old Man River runs through their so-called “river deltas” are Minnesota (18), Wisconsin (34), Iowa (33), Illinois (42), Missouri (41), Kentucky (29), Tennessee (13), Arkansas (26), Mississippi (47), and Louisiana (49).

Now that apparently the “BBB” initiative of the Biden Administration is not going anywhere, perhaps The White House may consider astutely the proposals stated in this series, as discussed in the 32 earlier parts of it.

We, Overseas Filipino writer-journalists (OFWJ), especially at the Philippine Daily Mirror and the MabuhayRadio.com, think positively that the OMRR ventures — if started in the next three years — will make Americans not forget Mr. Biden. Even if the political adversaries of President Biden are right that he will only serve for one term. President Biden may yet be known in U.S. history as the “Renaissance President” that started the economic rebirth of the U.S. states where the Mississippi River runs and the other states that provide water through tributary rivers to it.

The question, therefore, is “Quo vadis, President Biden?”
