3% growth


Good piece from Dean Baker. The tax cuts won't contribute to 3% growth but that doesn't mean it won't happen. Nobody has done a very good job of predicting growth and the effects of the new tech revolution are unknown.


As he says, there are two components- labor force growth and productivity.


Labor force does face a demographic headwind and the current immigration attitude also would present a drag (oh nevermind).
