IMO, it's not that it's the consensus per se. It's that there's been a couple of articles per month for the last 2-3 years making that case.
4% may still survive the recent doldrums; it remains to be seen. But right now, give the rampant pessimism out there, these writers have to do something to get readers.
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
