    It is a balloon; it gets bigger and smaller. There is no limit to how large it can become. Right now the world's GDP is about 64 trillion dollars...........................Still growing

    The pie model gives those of modest means the chance to justify their modest means by claiming that they have no wish to take away from someone else. It's a cop out.
