How often should I shave my face in order to promote more hair growth?

In brief: Mow your grass

No matter how you shave it does not effect hair growth.
Mowing a lawn cuts a living blade of grass and effects its growth. Razing your beard is cutting a dead tissue. Anyway, why would anyone want more hair on his face if he is only planning to shave it off??? I have been shaving for 60 years and I wish I had all that time for something else!
