A survey dating back to the 1990’s suggested that Americans anticipated a reduction in living standards and that a steadily increasing consumption no longer might be as important as it was in the past. (Were they right?) Suppose that a poll of 2000 people indicated 1373 in favor of forcing a reduction in the size of American automobiles by legislative means.
