The Economic Legacy of the Reagan Years: Euphoria or Chaos?

Synopsis

The economic legacy of the Reagan presidency is the subject of this collection of contrasting essays. Noting the sharp disagreements that have termed Reaganomics either an economic miracle or an economic disaster waiting to happen, the editors and contributors provide an analysis of the empirical evidence on a number of issues: supply-side economics, monetary policy, foreign trade, and the regulatory environment. Each formal study is complemented with either a competing study, or a commentary that offers an alternative perspective. A final essay synthesizes the divergent theories to arrive at a tentative conclusion.
