What is poor in world terms?

Can we continue with low rates of growth for the next fifty years? If we do then our most vulnerable citizens will lag further and further behind the poverty level of first world countries. Low growth affects the poor worst.

Our politicians continually raise their pay packets, have given themselves a gold-plated retirement scheme and recently gained control over their own unlimited expense accounts. Not only this but they have hugely increased their numbers while the population is growing by 1% or less and they are continually enlarging the bureaucracy.

Should we do nothing or act in the only way we can in a democracy. We must make our voice heard and our vote count.

Supporting The Foundation for Economic Growth is one way to show we care about tomorrow.

Creating Wealth and Keeping it

The New book by Phil Scott, President of the Foundation for Economic Growth.

"This book is good, damn good and no statistics!" Lindsay Gordon, MA, MSC, PHD.

Every serious economics student should have a copy and read this ground-breaking foundation of clear economic thinking. Real Economics explains how human actions shape our world and why so much seems to be going wrong for Western economies. This book will bring enlightenment for the general reader who will see why a few very wealthy are becoming exceedingly rich and the middle classes are on the road to serfdom.
