Notes: The CBO estimates that each 1/10th of one-percent increase in the real rate of growth will reduce the 10 year deficit by $314 billion. This is a conservative estimate since it is based on static analysis. A more realistic analysis would be to use the methodology of the Social Security Trustees and model changes based on the net present value to the infinite horizon. Capital investment figures are derived from the Woodhill Equation. The Woodhill Equation states that GDP = (46% x non-residential produced assets)+(7% x residential produced assets). Thus each new dollar of capital investment adds to the stock of produced assets which, in turn, generates an additional 46 cents of GDP every year. The average job is supported by $210,000 of produced assets. We are roughly 15.6 million jobs away from full employment. Any demand for jobs beyond this level will likely result in a combination of higher labor force participation, higher wages, and immigration.
