At the same time, it’s hard not to sympathize with Trump’s team when they rage against accepting anemic economic growth as “the new normal.” We actually did achieve 3 percent growth for a bit during the 1990s. And before then, back in 1950s and 1960s, we regularly did quite a bit better. So we know it’s possible.
Of course, if we want to get back to those sorts of growth rates, the obvious thing we should ask is: What were we doing then that we aren’t doing now?
Great article about how we can return to high growth as well as prosperity for everyone, not just the top 1%.
