      the product, if you must have a product for this to make sense is energy.  the growth part comes from building the streets, homes and farms themselves.  new areas opened up to business.  maintenance of said farms and servicing of new areas.

      or even old areas that have had their people migrate away being grown because of new roads, farms, business and related structures necessary for civilization.

      redesigning the coast, coastal cities, water systems and wildlife preservation could be a big boon to our economy.

      if only we could get it funded.  structures to protect us from the rising tide.  all of this could be done in ways that help reduce our dependence on oil and help combat the effects of global warming.

      but you know all of this.  you're just being obtuse. i really don't think you are clueless.  mr. no idea.
