Fixing the Capitalist machine | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

AMERICA has been the world’s most important growth machine since the second world war. In the 1950s and 1960s its GDP grew by 3% a year despite the economy’s maturity. In the 1970s it endured stagflation but the Reagan revolution revived the entrepreneurial spirit and the growth rate returned to 3% in the 1990s.
