O Efeito de uma Letra Errada

Neste blog de economia que eu sempre leio, ocorreu esta troca de comentários entre os participantes, e tudo porque alguém soletrou "bread" em vez de "breed".

Count me sceptical (as usual). I believe that potential output is conditional on current output. In other words a persistent output gap will cause the long run growth rate of the economy to diminish (as it has with Japan).

There was a good article on this published some 50 years ago. I believe its title was "The Importance of High Pressure Economics". (I'll have to search through my stacks.)

The point is that the best way to generate high rates of long run growth is to keep your economy near capacity. Large output gaps tend to lead to a depreciation of capital, be it physical or human. And depreciation of capital leads to lower rates of growth in potential output.

My memory evidently is beginning to fade. It was an old book (1957) called The American Economy by Harvard economist Alvin H. Hansen. The section of the book I am thinking of is aptly titled "The Case for High-Pressure Economics."

I've had some good Japanese baked goods, but I agree if this comment is that you'll do lots better going to Vienna, for example. But they do wonders with pork, which was something that surprised me.

I'm not sure about the Japanese proclivity for bread. However, if you're referring to their population growth rate why has their GDP per capita growth rate been so much lower since 1992?

O tópico era "Will the Economy Return to the Old Normal?"

Após passar brevemente pela questão da comida, eventualmente a discussão retornou a questão do futuro taxa de crescimento da economia americana. Tudo por causa de uma letra errada...

It seems to me that that happens all (or most) of the time.

As a nearly hard of hearing person, I will mishear a word or another called out to me. My girlfriend and other people have uttered a word and I have echoed back another. Others have despaired of conversing with me.

The ear doctor might lend me an ear if I ever find time to go to him.

Why do we have such big word "otorrinolaringologista" for ear doctor BTW?
