    How do we grow our economy once we cease to have any growth in the population? We're not there yet, but eventually we will stop growing. Economic growth, for the greatest part, is due to growth in population. What happens once that growth stops? How do we divvy up the pie then?

    No worries, we'll be morally and financially bankrupt long before then.

    Your "divvy up the pie" remark belies you.

    You are a parasite....You deserve no more attention than a leech, upon which I pour some salt.

    Take from the poor and give to the rich.

    For all those great wisecracks, you aren't very bright. Obviously, you lack the intelligence to understand the basic question. That is understandable based on most of your one line responses.

    Basic economics has no ideology.

    Saying that there is a "pie" presumes that wealth is finite and there should be someone, automatically presumed smarter than everyone else, doing the "divvying"...This flies in the face of even Keynesian voodoo economics.

    That's the reality, Scooter.

    When the OP mentions divvy up the pie.. it shows there is no real interest in growth.. just redistribution...
