Ryan: How to Grow the Economy at 4%

Article by Robert Asahina February 13, 2013 //   1 minute read

"We're going in the wrong direction," the Republican candidate for Vice President, Paul Ryan, said at the debate tonight. "This is not what a real recovery looks like." Ryan, who spoke at the Bush Institute's conference on "Tax Policies for 4% Growth" in New York this spring, said that economic policy should be about "getting the economy growing at 4%." Instead, "it's growing at 1.3%." He outlined five goals for a growth-oriented strategy:

— Energy independence in North America — Job training — Debt and deficit reduction — Strengthening America's ability to trade internationally — Nurturing small businesses, which are "the greatest job creators"

We need "real reforms for a real recovery," Ryan concluded. "Wouldn't it be nice to have a job-creator in the White House?"
