    What I don’t understand is, why do Austrian economists still talk about 2% “growth” if it’s really just treading water, at best.

    Speaking as a layman, I find it really confusing and wish they’d develop a new term for the trajectory of an economy in which the government keeps dramatically misallocating resources, and borrowing and printing money in a way which disincentivizes investment in future growth and imposes massive future taxes. It doesn’t sound like “growth” is anywhere in the tea leaves.

    What part of that 2% is actually induced by government mischief?
