|Resource title||The Moral Consequences Of Economic Growth|
|Author(s)||Benjamin M. Friedman|
|Date published||January 2006|
|Summary text/ abstract||Are we right to care so much about economic growth as we clearly do? For citizens of all too many of the world's countries, where poverty is still the norm, the answer is immediate and obvious. But the tangible improvements in the basics of life that make economic growth so important whenever living standards are low – greater life expectancy, fewer diseases, less infant mortality and malnutrition – have mostly been played out long before a country's per capita income reaches the levels enjoyed in today's advanced industrialized economies. Americans are no healthier than Koreans or Portuguese, for example, and we live no longer, despite an average income more than twice what they have. Yet whether our standard of living will continue to improve, and how fast, remain matters of acute concern for us nonetheless.|
