More About the Author
Bartlett's work is informed by many years in government, including service on the staffs of Congressmen Ron Paul and Jack Kemp and Senator Roger Jepsen, as executive director of the Joint Economic Committee of Congress, senior policy analyst in the Reagan White House, and deputy assistant secretary for economic policy at the Treasury Department during the George H.W. Bush administration.
Bruce is the author of eight books including the New York Times best-seller, Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy (Doubleday, 2006). His last book was The New American Economy: The Failure of Reaganomics and a New Way Forward (Palgrave Macmillan, 2009). His new book, The Benefit and the Burden, will be published by Simon and Schuster in 2012 and is a history and review of issues related to tax reform.

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.
