No commenters to the article. People seem unable to discuss themselves getting older and becoming infirm. How does caring for the sick create true economic growth? Just redistributing the same amount of dollars so people will need to be supported longer and longer. Anyone else wish to comment?

hjlazni: I think it is possible to have "true growth" if the workers are becoming more productive, not just adding workers. The article, and maybe the study, didn't address this. But I fear too that it's just shifting dollars around. But that beats the alternative - unemployment and not caring for the sick.

I don't read articles like this or studies because they are simply incapable of any more than propoganda. You bet this industry is pushing growth, it's the biggest new subsidy market in every state in the union. That is a terrible thing.

It shouldn't come as any surprise that job growth is coming from catering to any ever-aging population. With the US economic shift toward service and away from actually producing anything of material value, I find it far easier to support the caring of citizens over the the financial service industry which not only doesn't produce anything, it threatens the entire economy by rewarding reckless casino-type gambling.
