Novak, Robert D.
November 1980
National Review;11/28/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 24, p1444
The article encourages incoming U.S. President Ronald Reagan not to restore the policies espoused during the Nixon-Ford era and instead to follow his own radical impulse aimed at resolving myriad domestic and foreign problems. These problems include, among others, reduction of inflation, restoration of U.S. defense at parity with the Soviet Union and the dismantling of government regulation.
