Governments enjoying surpluses have a very strong tempt

Governments enjoying surpluses have a very strong temptation to splash money around, and while tax cuts are always appealing, cutting taxes at the top of a boom runs the real risk of creating a structural deficit when the boom subsides.

In the mid-1970s, there was this huge boom of stand-up comedy throughout North America. I went to see a show at a club called Yuk-Yuks, in Toronto, and I was just fascinated. I ended up coming back for amateur hour on a Monday at midnight and got up there without any thought as to what might come of it.
Howie Mandel
I feel like I’ve mastered what nervousness is, and simply, nervousness is, fearing the future. Or, I like to put it as, thinking about things that you don’t want in the future. Normally, artists may think, ‘What if my show doesn’t go well?’ Boom. That’s going to cause nervousness.

Charlie Murphy
‘Love’ has that Kubrick tonality to it, but this is not a Stanley Kubrick movie – there will never be another. At the same time, ‘Love’ has a modern feel.

Tom DeLonge
There is a kind of fear, approaching a panic, that’s spreading through the Baby Boom Generation, which has suddenly discovered that it will have to provide for its own retirement.

Lee Daniels
People come in. They are too gung ho. They invest too much money in things they don’t know. They lose it and then they clam up and stop investing. Then they miss the actual boom. That’s the nature of the market.

Carlos Condit
Being born at the tag-end of the baby boom, I was destined (or doomed, depending on how you look at it) to fall in love with sci-fi. It was one of my first literary loves, as a matter of fact.

Tim Matheson
It was an impulsive at her zenith Zeenat decision to act in ‘Boom,’ I signed the film after 70 per cent of the movie was done.
Zeenat Aman
Bonobo studies started in the ’70s and came to fruition in the ’80s. Then in the ’90s, all of a sudden, boom, they ended because of the warfare in the Congo. It was really bad for the bonobo and ironic that people with their warfare were preventing us from studying the hippies of the primate world.
Frans de Waal
My role models were always the Pacinos and the Oldmans, the guys who get dirty with their characters, and I arrived in L.A. during the big boom of ‘Dawson’s Creek.’ I was getting cast as the boy next door, or the friend of the jock. I thought, ‘Did I really have to do all that studying?’
Gabriel Mann
A reporter is always concerned with tomorrow. There’s nothing tangible of yesterday. All I can say I’ve done is agitate the air ten or fifteen minutes and then boom – it’s gone.

My generation had to be taken seriously because we were stopping things and burning things. We were able to initiate change, because we had such vast numbers. We were part of the baby boom, and when we moved, everything moved with us.
John Hughes
Instagram influencers project a specific, highly crafted image of perfection – one that is largely white, thin, and psychologically Zen. Critics argue that this boom, in turn, has helped fuel excessive self-promotion in which we post about only the good moments rather than reality – essentially, a distorted echo chamber.
Mary Pilon
I actually think Bill Gates is conventionally smarter, even though it’s a dumb word, but mental processing power – I’ve watched him use four different screens, process information, get to the right answer, boom boom boom.
Walter Isaacson
We think when God speaks to us, there’s going to be a boom out of Heaven or we’re going to get some chill bumps, but I really believe God’s talking to us all the time. He’s talking to us right in here. I call it our heart, our conscience, but it’s the Holy Spirit talking to us.

Danny Meyer
Kaizad Gustad is quite crazy, and he has weird ideas, and ‘Boom’ is one such idea. It’s a crazy film by a crazy guy. It’s almost a satire, a black comedy.
Amitabh Bachchan
I think it is true that, post the global financial crisis initially – and for some period after that and particularly with how the mining investment boom and commodity prices played out – there was a dislocation that occurred in some of the more traditional mechanisms.
Scott Morrison
Labor force participation peaked in early 2000, so its decline began well before the Great Recession. A portion of that decline clearly relates to the aging of the baby boom generation. But the pace of decline accelerated with the recession.

Dalton McGuinty
I’ve been in, like, kids’ clubs… I’ve been in the Boom Boom Room in New York, and the kids are going, ‘Oh my God, you produced ‘Arrested Development?” They aren’t talking about ‘A Beautiful Mind’ or ’24.’ It’s like the only thing in my whole career was ‘Arrested Development,’ literally.
Brian Grazer
From a technical point of view, there seemed to me to be absolutely no reason why – with the existing technology – we couldn’t do very high quality audio, because whereas the boom in digital graphics is ongoing, the boom in digital audio has already happened.
Thomas Dolby
There’s just a lot of really young, entitled people. I don’t think a lot of these young people have to work very hard. They’re found on YouTube and, boom, thrown into the studio, so they think they can get anything they want.
Drake Bell

I saw this thing years ago, where somebody filled a gymnasium with ping-pong balls and mousetraps. And then somebody threw just one more ping-pong ball in there, and literally, in five seconds, the room was popping. And then it was dead. And that’s how it was with ‘Dallas.’ Just… ‘boom!’
Patrick Duffy
When I saw Air Boom perform, I went out of my mind. It was two guys with high-octane offence forming a team. It was exciting.
Tyson Kidd
When I hear the word ‘documentary,’ I don’t think certain things should be left out. You’ve got to keep it 100 percent as much as you can, unless your group has a meeting beforehand and says, ‘Yo – don’t say this, ’cause boom, boom, boom.’ Other than that, it’s a documentary so let’s document, you know what I mean?
Phife Dawg
Harlem was the main chance for the east end of New York, for eastsiders, as that real estate boom that took place in the 1890s – and it was a preposterous one where people bought and sold, and everything appreciated with each sale – and eventually, of course, the house of cards would crumble.
David Levering Lewis
We’re not one of those groups who have one song on the radio and, boom, they’re an instant success. We worked hard from day one and didn’t get a lot of respect, possibly because of the way we were marketed.
Kevin Jonas
I only dabble in the digital currency. I’m not an expert or know if it’s going to boom or bust. But being a business guy, I try to diversify a little bit.
Pat Connaughton
My stepfather was quite into opera, but he’d play it when he was in a bad mood, so you’d hear this boom through the floor, Wagner, and you’d feel nervous.
Sam Taylor-Johnson
It’s hard enough to just be a good actor. When you’re on set, there’s everything going against you. There are walkie talkies going off, the camera is creaking and moving, there are boom mics, and you have to hit your mark and make sure you don’t shadow the other person’s face. It’s a really technical process.
James Marsden
Demolishing pretensions, especially worthy ones, is a hallmark of the baby boom.

I mean, I guess I started during the comedy boom, so it was literally like, on Sunday you could decide you wanted to be a comic, and on Monday, you could be on stage.

Brian Fallon

Doug E. Fresh
Ten years ago I was not heavily involved in the film world but on reflection it was a boom time with the mineral boom happening, so there was immense growth for industrial training films, documentaries to do with the mining, and the outback world.
Ann Macbeth
I’d quit my job at a production company and was like, ‘I’m going to be a writer…’ I became a temp, and it was the mid-nineties, when there was the Internet boom, and the normal group of graduates ready to fill in didn’t exist.
Jennifer Konner
I was completely with the reality TV boom for a while. I really liked a lot of the reality TV, and the one that lost me was the ballroom dancing one they do, ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ That was the one where I watched it and I was perplexed. I thought it was really boring.
Adam McKay
My generation grew up in the heyday of the ’90s, with the Internet boom and the birth of overnight millionaires. But our politicians seem to be pushing personal agendas over the idea of making the world a better place for their children.
Meghan McCain
Sensitivity isn’t being wimpy. It’s about being so painfully aware that a flea landing on a dog is like a sonic boom. I enjoy a lot of mystery.
Jeff Buckley
When we first started making videos, we didn’t have a boom mic, so we had to talk really loud. And then we got a boom mic and were like, ‘Wow, we’re shouting,’ and had to learn to bring it back.
Anthony Padilla
Jazz is really 20th-century fusion music. You take West African harmony and rhythm, mix with European harmony, and boom!
Christian Scott

John C. Reilly
I think the dot-com boom and bust represented the end of the beginning. The industry is more mature today.

As African economies boom and businesses are created, one of the big questions this growth raises is that of third-level education: how can Africa develop a knowledge infrastructure to rival that of the west, a sort of Harvard University in Africa?

Bill Dedman

Christopher Walken
I seem to belong to a boom moment of playwrights, and I’m always curious about how we all got here and what comes next.
Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
Prince, you never knew what to expect from him from one album to the next. Miles Davis was like that. You know, once you get used to one style, boom, he switched it and, you know, switched gears on you. So those artists are very exciting to me, very exciting to follow their path, you know, and their journey.
A great deal of energy is spent daily on pushing the Russian e-commerce boom along while managing all aspects of growth and development along the way.
Maelle Gavet

Boom, crush. Night, losers. Winning, duh.
Charlie Sheen
Society can take two roads – the road to genuine prosperity, or the road to artificial stimulus. The first results in a permanent higher standard of living for all; the latter creates an inflationary boom that cannot last.
Mark Skousen
The double bind lowers its boom on women in positions of authority, so those who haven’t yet risen to such positions have not yet felt its full weight.
Deborah Tannen
For 10 years, I’d been told I was always going to be a catalogue girl, never a cover girl. Well, I got with IMG and did five covers in a year, boom, boom, boom.
Ashley Graham
My scientific qualifications are relatively scant. I like science. I try really hard to educate myself about it, but in the end, if something has to go ‘boom,’ and it would probably only go ‘fwoosh,’ I am relatively unconcerned about that, which is a sin, but not, I think, a grave one.
Nick Harkaway
It doesn’t matter if you call it a boom or a bubble. The startup business moves in cycles, and what goes up will eventually come down.

I remember back in Detroit, I used to go to the Apex Bar every night after I got off work. The bartender there used to call me Boom Boom. I don’t know why, but he did.
John Lee Hooker
Australian SF book publishing has undergone a boom recently, and sometimes it’s easier for new writers to sell a book to a local publisher first, which then makes a US edition more likely.

If corporations and rich people who made fortunes out of us during the boom are not paying their fair share then reform the tax system and close down the tax havens.
John McDonnell
One day, I can come up with 50 content ideas, and I’m like, ‘Boom, I want to do this idea, this idea, this idea.’ I have a YouTube notebook, and I write them all down. Then other days, I’m like, ‘I have no clue what I want to do today.’ I rarely have days like that.
JoJo Siwa
Boom, I move to L.A. after doing ‘Aftershock,’ and I’ve been actually working here. So it’s all been ‘boom’; it’s all been ‘boom’ everything. It’s so exciting. It’s been amazing. I’m a very lucky girl.
Lorenza Izzo
Imagine your family finally making it from nothing to something, and finally getting things going, and finally buying a beautiful house and taking care of your children – and the next day, it’s completely all gone. Zero. Boom. Flat broke. So that’s when I had to man up.

Fred Wilson
The few movies I can even think of that I watch over and over would be the Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton movie ‘Boom!’, ‘Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!’, and ‘Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.’ I wouldn’t call any of them mainstream.
John Waters
I’m sad that my childhood came just slightly before the lithium-ion-battery boom, because I would’ve killed for the cheap radio-controlled helicopters they have now.

I always say the next big thing will happen in unexpected places – up and coming cities that aren’t necessarily boom markets.

Being a Russian oligarch these days isn’t easy. The best and brightest of them are in exile or in jail; others, after feasting on leverage during the commodities boom, now have tummies full of debt.
Keith Gessen
After the dotcom boom blew up, it increased the focus on questions like, ‘Why should I trust you to help run my business? How do I know you’re not going to go away like every other company?’ That was hard. We had to keep proving ourselves.

It is very difficult to get people to focus on the most important things when you’re in boom times.

Walker Hayes
I know exactly what I want to buy and I spend very little time, maybe 15 hours a year, buying stuff. I’ll go in and out of Dunhill in 45 minutes and pick out a few suits. Boom. And I’m gone. I get my shirts at Charvet. I go in there – woosh – and buy 12 shirts and some ties; once a year and that’s it.
Edward N. Ney
If you’ve been wondering where the next gold rush is going to take place, look up at the night sky to our closest celestial neighbor. The next economic boom might just be a mere 240,000 miles away on the bella luna.
Peter Diamandis
In the 1980s and 1990s, radical change in economic policies fostered by Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher put the brakes on government planning and ushered in a new free-market supply-side era and a two-decade boom. That model has been abandoned in the new century. This must be reversed.
Lawrence Kudlow
I wanted to go back on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ I did it. One of my favorite shows is ‘Hawaii Five-0.’ I went on, guest starred. I wanted to be in a film, did ‘Tasmanian Devils’ in Vancouver. Wanted to host a show, boom, did it.
Apolo Ohno
During World War II, hundreds of thousands of people actually – and among them many African-American – migrated to the Hampton Roads area because of the job boom that was happening. It was a place where you could get stable war jobs.
Margot Lee Shetterly
I wound up becoming an A&R man at London Records in the 1990s, during the boom of Britpop, the last great gold rush of the music industry. I saw incredible greed and terrible behaviour. I was greedy and terribly behaved.
John Niven
I guess now music is so saturated and so microwaved. It’s, like, 15 minutes in the microwave and boom, you’ve got something. Nobody’s putting passion or any thought behind it anymore.
Young Jeezy
The two defining issues of this century are both universal but felt locally: the global water crisis and the resources boom.
Jay Weatherill
Following an extended boom in housing, the demand for homes began to weaken in mid-2005. By the middle of 2006, sales of both new and existing homes had fallen about 15 percent below their peak levels. Homebuilders responded to the fall in demand by sharply curtailing construction.
Ben Bernanke
We didn’t expect ‘Boom Boom Pow’ to come out the box and be so successful.
What’s great about the play ‘Pygmalion’ is that it’s sort of two plays. It’s the one simple trajectory of girl bettering herself. It’s a bet; it’s a dare. Will they get away with it? Basic seed: boom. And then it goes into a different direction.
Harry Hadden-Paton
I like Chandrababu Naidu because he is the person who developed the city of Hyderabad and created the software boom. I also like K.T. Rama Rao for his work and the way he helps through Twitter and responds to many causes.
Vijay Deverakonda
What they’re not ready for is guys like you and I and Nails and all the other gnarly gnarlingtons in my life, that we are high priests, Vatican assassin warlocks. Boom. Print that, people. See where that goes.

Evan Fournier
My grandfather was hit over the head by a crane boom in Seattle. Some of the family claimed he was never a violent, crazy person before that. Some say he was. It depends who you believe.
Chuck Palahniuk
The boom for luxury goods is unending. There are people who never have to worry about whether they can afford something they like. In one part of the world or another there will always be someone with money to spend on luxury.
Diego Della Valle
I was in the Air Force and was a boom operator (in-flight refueling). I got my comedy start in the Air Force.

Nirmal Purja
And it’s interesting, when you look at the predictions made during the peak of the boom in the 1990s, about e-commerce, or internet traffic, or broadband adoption, or internet advertising, they were all right – they were just wrong in time.
Chris Anderson
In the beginning, when I signed with Miami, they said they were never gonna trade me, and then, after first year, boom, they traded me to Toronto.
Jose Reyes
What does the quarter-back do after handing off? He runs to the perimeter and blocks. Or tries to block. I tried to throw a block at the cornerback but his knee got me right on the temple. I remember thinking, ‘boom.’
Oliver Luck
The thing that got us going early was the running boom. And then, I think, we rode the Jordan bit, which then kind of crossed us over into the pop culture.

We don’t have a prayer of defeating the Red Threat of our generation without a long boom of almost unprecedented duration.

During the boom years of the 1990s, globalization emerged as the most significant development in our national life. With NAFTA and the Internet and big-box stores selling cheap goods from China, the line between national and international began to blur.
Noah Feldman
An IPO-mad technology boom made ‘selling out’ itself into an honorific.
Alissa Quart
I think the Baby Boom has enjoyed itself, maybe sometimes a little too much, and we’re continuing to enjoy ourselves, maybe a little too much.
P. J. O’Rourke
The character – character – of Mallory on ‘Family Ties’ was a year younger than me. A fictitious year younger than me. So, I am not 21. I am not getting into the club. Boom.
Justine Bateman
Everyone’s supposed to stay in their lines and be neat. ‘You’re a rapper. You’re supposed to rap, carry a boom box, wear chains, and go to the club – that’s all you do. What are you doing collecting art? What are you talking about? Wait a minute, you’re getting out of the zone.’ People hate when people cross lines.
The tar sands boom has become the world’s largest energy project, the world’s largest construction project, and the world’s largest capital project.
Andrew Nikiforuk
We took advantage of the running boom, which became the jogging boom, which became the fitness boom… and we’ve benefited from all of that.
Phil Knight
In ‘Where the Air is Clear’, Carlos Fuentes composed a polyphonic portrait of Mexico City amid the growth and modernization brought on by the economic boom of the 1950s. The novel can be read as a jazz interpretation – free and in a Mexican key – of John Dos Passos’ ‘Manhattan Transfer’.
Alvaro Enrigue
Sometimes you just need a spark, and then boom, boom, boom, now the bats come alive.

I am a light person. I think of myself with a shield, a protective shield around me. And I think of bad things bouncing off it. Boom, boom, boom, ba-boom, ba- boom!
Kelly Brook
I was on the outside of the industry. So I started a podcast early in the podcast boom and that caught on a little. I made an album that went to No. 1 on the iTunes charts. I made my own special. I started my own storytelling show.
Ari Shaffir
The global boom in commodities fueled by a debt-financed infrastructure and real-estate bubble in China is over.
Kevin Brady

Crafting covers so many areas and over the last few years, we have seen a real boom in the U.K. in terms of people adopting craft as a hobby.
Sara Davies
Every year, I have to spend another hour working out. Pretty soon I’ll be spending eight hours working out just to fit in the costume. I have the feeling that the minute I stop doing the character, boom, Roseanne Barr.
Cassandra Peterson
Bill Clinton beat Bush’s father, President George H.W. Bush, for the White House in 1992 by focusing on ‘the economy, stupid’ – and Clinton’s victory led, in time, to the longest sustained boom in American history.
Nigel Hamilton
Google started out when the dot-com boom was happening. It grew under the radar of big companies that were competing in but basically ignoring search. Then they were able to really invest during the bust for a long time.
Evan Williams
Why does Medicare have such difficulty accommodating a cut – no, wait, a trim to its annual spending increase – of two measly percentage points? Two words: baby boom.
Timothy Noah
Poverty is a solved problem – all they have to do is abolish taxes and regulations which cripple those intelligent, capable, and responsible men and women and destroy their productive capacity, then stand back and watch the economy boom.
L. Neil Smith
I grew up on a farm in Lexington, Oklahoma, a rural community south of Norman. My family moved to Enid, Oklahoma, in 1962, when I was a junior in high school. This cast me into a totally different environment. Enid was a company town for Champlin Petroleum, and there was an oil boom going on.
Harold Hamm
I was just going at this career – boom, boom, boom! Then all of a sudden, at 38, Oh, my God – I forgot to get married!
Connie Chung
