National Review;9/18/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 18, p1059
This article considers the real condition of the economic program of U.S. President Ronald Reagan as of September 18, 1981. The U.S. press is declaring that the president's economic program is a failure. According to the author, many journalists are hostile to the economic changes implied by Reagan's economic policy. The author believes however that reports of doubts within the administration may be taken seriously. He reports that the 1982 budget deficit is likely to be larger than the official $42.5 billion figure.
