Gooner7 In the real world this is completely wrong, as evidenced by the current economy. Current consumption would evidence that there is a demand for current goods, which would trigger additional spending in capex projects, which would create jobs, and thereby continue to increase current consumption. but whatever
hks101 Sources of ONGOING economic growth, which means sustainable growth. Consumption can't promote growth forever as there's finite of income. When that runs out you can borrow but you can only leverage for so long.
