Overview

In the last half of the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution sparked a remarkable, historic series of innovations-the first transatlantic telegraph cable, electric lights and motors, automobiles, telephones, and more. This process of discovery and invention led to a noninflationary boom in economic growth, and the United States became the most powerful, most influential nation in history.

Today, we are witnessing the same phenomenon. Computers, fax machines, the Internet, cellular telephones, satellite communication systems-all of these technological developments and more are working together to increase productivity and efficiency. Inflation is at its lowest level in years, while entrepreneurial activity is at an all-time high. Smaller government, fewer regulations, and lower taxes have created an ideal environment for innovation.
