To the Editor:                                           

Fast forward: We are watching the beginnings of an economic boom on a scale never experienced before.

We have entered a period of sustained growth that could eventually double the world’s economy every dozen years and bring increasing prosperity for, quite literally, billions of people on the planet.

We are riding the early waves of a greatly expanding economy that will do much to solve seemingly intractable problems like poverty and to ease tensions throughout the world.

The face of the earth has changed dramatically and is changing ever faster. What would have taken one thousand generations in the past may now happen in a single generation.

    "We are riding the early waves of a greatly expanding economy that will do much to solve seemingly intractable problems like poverty and to ease tensions throughout the world."

    The only thing "greatly expanding" is governmental control. And, if you read the history books you will find out it never ends well.
