Celebrating a Full and Active Year

When I was in government and in the private sector, I always took time at the end of each year to reflect on the accomplishments of the state government or the company I was running. More often than not, I found myself surprised at our ability to overcome challenges and move forward.

When people talk about our nation's slow rate of economic growth, it often comes with a tone of resignation.

"Perhaps 2.5% growth is the new norm," some people say. 

According to the Congressional Budget Office, that 2.5% growth rate may be with us for the next 10 years. 

Slow Economic Growth Threatens Our Future

Life seems to flow a little easier when we have things we can count on. Perhaps it’s that hot cup of coffee from the corner shop each morning or football games on Sunday afternoons. It might be the same old haircut from your barber or a weekly phone call from a close friend.
