"For the most partâ€¦people see growth as bad. They look around and see their highways and byways choked with cars, and their kids struggling to get the attention of teachers in overcrowded classrooms. And they react negatively.
They believe quality of life is made worse by growth, not better. And they rail against it.
But is growth really that objectionable? Not necessarily, according to an interesting and simple bit of research by the National Association of Home Builders, the Washington, D.C.-based, 225,000-member trade organization."
