Featuring Brian Domitrovic, CU-Boulder’s Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought & Policy
Wed., Feb. 17, 2016
Benson Earth Sciences Room 180
University of Colorado Boulder
This event is free and open to the public.
Supply-side economics was the policy innovation of a generation ago that put an end to the “stagflation” episode of the 1970s and early 1980s. Its formula of monetary restraint in concert with tax-rate cuts was also crucial to the booms of the 1960s and the Roaring 1920s. In our contemporary environment of economic near-stagnation, the tradition of supply-side economics remains relevant and instructive.
Brian Domitrovic is the leading historian of supply-side economics. His book Econoclasts (2009) chronicled the history of the movement from its origins in academia in the 1950s through its policy triumph in the Ronald Reagan years. He will speak about the useful ways that the tradition of supply-side economics can inform our urgent debate over how to restore economic growth today.
