There has been a lot of talk about economic growth over the past few months. Economic growth is one of the hot-button issues of the 2012 campaign. Each candidate would like to put in their two cents about what creates economic growth. Republicans like to say that they are the “pro-growth” party. President Obama likes to say that his policies have created some economic growth, and we need to re-elect him for all of the growth to be realized. But what really drives growth? Saving does. Saving drives economic growth. Yes, there are other things that are economic drivers, but saving is a huge economic driver.
