PeakTrader:

Larger economies tend to grow more slowly than smaller economies. Over the 1982-00 boom, per capita real GDP growth wasn’t in decline, even with increasingly larger trade deficits, which subtracted from GDP growth.

There has been a slow demographic shift after 2000, which reduced per capita real GDP growth, along with even larger trade deficits and on top of huge GDP gains. However, the sudden and sharp downshift in per capita real GDP growth after 2007, along with smaller trade deficits, which add to GDP, cannot be explained by mostly demographics. It continues to be mostly a cyclical phenomenon.

Over the past eight years, U.S. per capita real GDP growth should’ve been several times stronger.

Total per capita real GDP growth over selected periods, since WW II.

July ’47 to July ’61: 28.3%
July ’61 to July ’70: 33.7%
July ’70 to July ’82: 22.2%
July ’82 to July ’90: 28.0%
July ’90 to July ’00: 24.0%
July ’00 to July ’07: 10.4%
July ’07 to Apr ’15: 3.2%

****

The U.S. offshored entire industries, while creating new industries, and consumed up to $800 billion a year more than produced in the global economy.

After 2007, that cycle of global growth has slowed substantially with the sharp slowdown of U.S. economic growth.
