Over the past two decades, the United States has enjoyed the greatest sustained economic growth in history. Despite recent stock reversals, the DowJones average has risen ten-fold from 1,000 in 1980 to approximately 10,000 today. Individuals who purchased shares of stock to finance business expansion have reaped the benefits of business success.
