Grow the pie, or slice it differently?

The Spectator: 84% of Americans prefer the government concentrate on economic growth. "What's really interesting is that this is not a party divide, and it's not a divide across income groups, either." Eurobarometer polls show "64 per cent [of Europeans] think that competition is the best way to secure prosperity" but "64 per cent want to see 'equality' and 'justice', even at the expense of freedom."

Thanks to Adam Smith Institute blog for the pointer.

Eclectecon, have there been similar polls in Canada?

It would be interesting to see cross-country polls on this question: What do you think is the best to get ahead personally? Expend effort making sure you get a big share, or expend effort being productive?

It is obvious that growing the pie is a better choice, but realities often dictate otherwise. When you sit with business owners, they will tell you that they are trying to grow the pie so everyone can have a bigger slice. Lip service.

The truth of the matter is, it is often a case of war, where getting a larger piece is not the only objective. The other objective is the destruction of the competition. If you are aiming for that, rest assured, growing the pie is not the answer.
