Select all of the text and then Shift-Command-> to increase the point size and Shift-Command-< to decrease. The increment is set in your Units & Increments Preferences.

If I undertstand correctly, you want to resize all the text on a page proportionally? If so, you can select all of the text boxes with the direct select tool, and (on a Mac) use Shift-Command while grapping one corner of the selection. This will allow you to drag the size of everything larger or smaller.

Not if you are trying to scale text of different sizes and/or in different text boxes. 

For that, I think you would need to set up styles, and edit each style to the size you want. 

 

(Maybe this could be scripted. That is outside of my knowledge base, but someone who knows scripting may come in with a solution for you.)

Edit:  My mistake - it can be done, as Rob Day has described.

You can also customize the incrementing key commands:

Right. You can also select one or multiple text frames (click, Shift-click, or marquee-select with the Selection tool), and increase/decrease the text in them using the key shortcuts. Note that unless the frame(s) is/are set to Auto Size (or have a lot of empty space), you may produce an overset text condition.
