Reaganomics: The Long View

Buckley Jr., Wm. F.
July 1981
National Review;7/24/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 14, p860
The article discusses the issue of whether the economic platform of U.S. President Ronald Reagan will work and lift the country from stagnation. It explains the view of economist Peter G. Peterson about the workability of the economic platform of President Reagan. Peterson cites the experience of West Germany and Japan to drive the point that the economic platform of Reagan is in the right direction. However, President Reagan should provide more focus and reduce budget more in order to produce maximum results from his economic platform.
