I found a recent article posted on this site whose moderator apears to believe that economic growth is bad. Like Chicago Math and Common Core, this type of thinking is dangerous for your economic well-being---it is fundamentally illiterate. Humans everywhere find ourselves in a vise created by rising expectations and falling prospects of earning reliable "real" incomes doing fullfilling work. In the U.S., we have way too much debt already and too many large, ill-configured enterprises in the public an d private sectors are wedded to destroying economic value. In addition, feelings of "prosperity" are wholly due to suppression of reference interest rates--something that will NOT continue. Moreover, reversal will hurt everyone, rich and poor.
