Why did the long post World War II boom happen? The disintegration of several European colonial empires, which accompanied the emergence of the US and USSR as superpowers after World War II, laid the basis for a long economic boom. For similar reasons, robust economic growth in the US was made possible during the latter part of the 1990s by the counterrevolution in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe and free market reforms in China. This essay predicted fairly robust economic growth in the US during the latter part of the 1990s.
