All we know are at least 2 points (and can reason – philosophically rather than mathematically – almost certainly the only 2 points) where the line crosses 0. It may have a nice simple shape – there may be multiple peaks – USA, Germany, Sweden, for example – of similar or near-similar heights. Which peak you then try to aim for is a matter of your political views rather than simple economics. Life just doesn’t model that easily.
