Sample text

Whether it’s good health care, electricity, music, or more fuel-efficient cars, no matter what, people always want more. If demand were all it took to create wealth, then there should be no poor country in the world. I have never heard any economist try to make the case that American consumers are better demanders, and that’s why the American economy leads the world. This is because demand alone cannot boost economic activity. And neither can government spending. Despite spending 50 percent of GDP on military budgets, the Soviet Union continued to rot from within, which is exactly what happened to the Roman Empire.

Pessimism is a funny thing. Pessimists just can’t believe that good times can last. The longer things stay good and the longer the pessimists are wrong, the more they become convinced they will eventually be right. And once something does go wrong, no matter how long they have to wait, the pessimists convince themselves that their longheld beliefs were perfectly legitimate and correct all along. Demand versus Supply For economics, much of this negativity and pessimism has it roots in demand-side economic thinking — the belief that economic growth is determined by consumption (demand).
