#22A EXPANSIONISM (ECONOMIC)

I believe that an economy is healthy when it's expanding, creating lots of new jobs, and there's good public / private sector co-operation.  Investing in infrastructure and better access to information improves productivity and decision making. Investing in human skills leads to new ideas, new technologies--and new markets. The benefits of growth and free trade will overcome poverty. While environmental problems are formidable, government and corporate planners--backed by scientific and technological expertise--are up to the challenge. They can fine tune the economy and deal with these problems, no fundamental changes are needed.
