National Review;10/15/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 20, p1300
This article comments on the inflation and private-sector productivity during the administration of President Ronald Reagan in the United States. According to the author, both the poor and the minorities have been victimized by the past decade's indifference to inflation and private-sector productivity and its fiscal profligacy. It is worth noting that during President Reagan's reign, the number and percentage of poor people increased in the United States. Moreover, the unemployment gap between whites and blacks widened.
