The article discusses the late U.S. President Ronald Reagan's tax of 1981 as one of the most successful policy initiatives of modern American history. It notes that the tax cut proved that efforts to constrain government for the benefit of the real economy can succeed and remained a resource provided by history in seeking motivation and precedent to expand prosperity and freedom by shrinking government. It refers to the Reagan Revolution as a way of advancing through the current sluggishness.
