Re: Double-digit growth?
Should they ever expect to continually grow?
Nope That's what's wrong with the economy.
Just take a 'mere' 10% annual growth as an example... Adding 10% every year results in a logarithmic curve reaching the vertical after a number of years. Even 10% is an impossible expectation.
Interest based debt-money is the driver of this unsustainable growth trap. We need a different monetary system to fix the needless boom and bust cycles.
But since there's some very powerful people profiting from this debt-money scheme beyond your wildest dreams, that's not going to happen without some cataclysmic event.
Nobody ever changed the monetary system in a history littered with failed FIAT currencies. Not because its not possible (see Austrian currency systems examples) But because there are certain people with a very strong interest to keep it the way it is, because they are getting stinking filthy rich off everybody else's hard work with their "legal" ponzi scheme - and they get to exert control over everything.
