Prosperity Is Us

During my lifetime there has occurred in the U.S. wide distribution of resources across the population and the elevation of a substantial portion of the population above the level of basic subsistence. No other nation on earth in history can match the extent of these trends. They are characteristic of the American economy and they have come to shape American society. A broad appeal of American culture is consumerism based upon prosperity and individual freedom of choice. But, prosperity is always uneven and it never seems to be enough to raise all ships or solve all problems. The fear is demand will exceed capacity but the danger is demand will exceed capability.
