Traditional trade-off thinking says we must accept undesirable costs to get desirable benefits. Win-win thinking says we can avoid the unwanted costs of big deficits and still have economic growth. Such an accomplishment comes about through improved technology, free trade, and public policy. Win-win, or super-optimising, policy is capable of simultaneously achieving both conservative and liberal goals. To be meaningful policies, they may have to satisfy various kinds of feasibility. The text accompanying the tables in this CD-ROM frequently talks about the need to overcome these feasibility hurdles.
