The U.S. economy continues to be lifted by an incredible wave of new technology.  Fracking, 3-D printing, smartphones, apps, and the cloud have boosted productivity and profits.  Yet taxes, regulation and spending all increased markedly in the past decade, raising the burden of government and dragging down the real GDP growth rate to a modest [...]
