Expert's answer

It is also interesting to know the mathematical trick called the rule of 70.& This rule allows us to easily figure out the number of years it would take to double our income (or GDP) at a given interest rate (or rate of growth). &

Number of years to double = 70/rate (either growth or interest).

According to rule provided we can calculate:

Number of years to double = 70/2.5%=40 years

Number of years to double = 70/rate (either growth or interest).

According to rule provided we can calculate:

Number of years to double = 70/2.5%=40 years
