Format: Hardcover
Despite the erroneous claims of several Keynesian progressives, the supply side theory was actually a very successful policy that resulted in an average growth rate of 3.2 percent per year. That being said, this book is actually the first major attempt at expressing exactly what Supply Side Economics is. This attempt at profiling the dreams of the Supply Siders is something to admire however, the policies that were advocated in this book were not necessarily the policies that were in effect. Knowing this fact, all readers should read this book as a "treatise" on Supply Side Economics and not a vindication of the Reagan economic policies.

Supply side economics assumes that people will always buy a good or service if the price is low enough. The market can produce as much as it wants, supply the goods, and there will always be a buyer for those goods if the price is dropped or low enough to create a buying incentive.

The most recent recession shows the falacy of this thinking. In addition, a book entitled Zombie Economics goes into detail examining different failed economic theories and supply side economics is considered a failed theory now by many including David Stockton of the Reagan administration who was once a big proponent of supply side economics.

To say it worked is just ignoring the facts. What created the jobs in the Reagan administration was the stimulas spending. The govenment spending for a huge military buildup including Star Wars was the greatest military spending increase since the Vietnam War. That spending is what brought the country out of the recession and created the jobs. Not the tax cuts as is the myth. In fact tax increases under Bill Clinton saw far greater prospertiy and economic growth than under Reagan.

Bartlett now along with many economists have concluded that supply side economics was a grand experiment that failed.
