The author comments on the impact of the upcoming U.S. presidential election in 2008 on the country's economy. According to the author, if the optimistic example of former President Ronald Reagan triumphs, who created tax cuts during his regime in the 1980s, the country will have sound, noninflationary growth, and will lead the world in technological innovation. The stock market will soar easily to new heights. But if the current Democratic platform wins, the country is in for troubled times.
