Howie: The driver for the world-wide economic boom - and the reduction in world-wide poverty has been the demand for goods and services extending from the overall population growth coming out of the
second world war - driven largely by the western and eastern
economies and by the increased communication - i.e. trade throughout
the world triggered to no small degree by the war. The restriction
of economic growth imposed by the failed communist experiments and the
cold war disappeared - and for a while growth was explosive.

Very impressive. Would you kindly refer us to your scholarly paper (peer reviewed) supporting these claims? Because they sound like pure BS.

I suspect the cold war provided the stimulus for a lot of the growth you attribute to WW II.
