The article reports on the looming growth crisis in the U.S. According to economic experts, it gets a little worse each day because it is a cumulative effect of the growing population, vibrant economy, high standard of living, rich natural resources, and abundant land. The main concern of economic planners is not on the immediate term but on the long term when the nation have exhausted its natural resources and the cost of fixing the problems would be far greater than when anticipating and solving these problems in the present.
