Hi Sheina i agree it should not all be about consumption. I should add that I am a fan of FIRE, and an Pursuing it myself so my consumption rate is very low relative to my income.

My comment was from the perspective of Keynes, I don’t think he would be a fan of it himself based on some of his comments warning against excessive saving.

He Keynesian view is not the only theory, stay tuned I’ll be covering all sorts of different theories on what drives economic growth!

Thanks for your comments, keep them coming!
