Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
(and let's face it, that's the best case, for Europe and the US), economic growth is not required to justify the cost. It's more a matter of the cost of not doing so. For example : maintaining real estate value in cities served by HSR, rather than seeing them collapse as other modes of transport become impracticable.
