Econoclasts: The Rebels Who Sparked The Supply-Side Revolution and Restored American Prosperity

This video is temporarily unavailable.

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Professor Brian Domitrovic has written the first comprehensive history of how a few economists and journalists - who believed deeply in lower taxes and a stable money supply - translated their ideas into the public policy and launched the supply-side policy revolution. In so doing, they reversed the disastrous 1970's trends of ever higher taxes and runaway inflation. Dr. Domitrovic's book answers the many revisionist histories of Supply-Side Economics which appear in the media and in college text books. The facts are clear. If the naïve and misguided economic policies during the Nixon, Ford, and Carter years had continued, the United States would have experienced a second and worse great depression. It is from this dangerous fate, at the height of the Cold War, that the supply-siders stepped in and averted catastrophe. Econoclasts is a thoughtful, accurate telling of this important part of U.S. history. Join us for an enlightening discussion of this ground breaking publication.
