As far as living standards go the 1970s was the peak of America. It has been stagnate to downhill ever since. In order to get back to that we would have to fix the marriage problem where instead of two people combining incomes and expenses, we now have two divorced adults living in two separate locations with two separate expenses, and keeping incomes apart. Plus we would have to go back to having high wage jobs that can't be outsourced, and a better education system.

I remember Chuck Harder on his “For the People” program said that in the 1990’s up until he retired around 2009 or so where we’ve been declining since 1973. Robert J. Ringer, noted libertarian, made a good point in one of his news letters I subscribe to were the economic collapse was supposed to happen around 1985/90 but was delayed by President Reagan’s economic policies as well as the 1980’s computer boom that went into the 1990’s internet boom that lasted until 2007 or so.
