    Not only does he expect 3-4%, but most of the growth expectations set forth by govt. are based on the expected growth numbers that (historically) have been about half that.
    Is that unrealistic? At least three times in my lifetime, we've had a few years in a row with that kind of growth. I'm not thinking that 2% should be the new normal.

    Now-a-days, yes. I don't think it should be normal either, but it's not like we keep electing presidents based on their macro economics degrees.

    You being a child still, you probably didn't know this: You make an assertion, YOU back it up.

    You are very welcome. ;-)

    And 4% is certainly very realistic if one bases that on historical numbers.. http://www.multpl.com/us-gdp-growth-rate/table/by-year
