"23 Ways All Economists Agree We Can Boost Growth"
If economists were to assume their rightful place as omnipotent autocrats unfettered by elections or constituencies, could we reach agreement on policies that would move the U.S. to a level of sustained economic growth of four percent per annum? Damn straight we could, Brannon avers, and he's prepared to explain in detail how we could do such a thing.
