Demographics do not have to be destiny. We have a choice. Today's economic growth challenges will become greater in the future because of the world's aging population, fertility levels and trends, and current entitlement policies. Those challenges can be overcome with thoughtful public policies and a culture that fosters responsibility and appreciation.
Michael Falk's "Let's All Learn How to Fish… to Sustain Long-Term Economic Growth" reconsiders what makes us "healthy, wealthy, and wise." Our past does not need to be prologue to our future, but all of us (who are capable) need to take responsibility to ensure it does not become so. Policies that reward paying riders, not free riders, are needed. The book focuses on how we might re-imagine health care, retirement, and education policies to usher in a new ERA (… from Entitlement to Responsibility with Appreciation) of sustainable long-term economic growth.
