The Secret of Reagan’s Success

Lecture by Richard M. Salsman

Was U.S. President Ronald Reagan (1981-1989) a hero? Why did he once describe himself as an ?admirer of Ayn Rand?? Were Reagan?s ?supply-side? policies pro-capitalist? Did those policies truly revive the U.S. economy in the 1980s or instead deliver a ?false prosperity?? What was Reagan?s worst economic policy error – and why did he make it? Why were Objectivst-inspired economists Reagan?s worst domestic enemies? Did Reagan?s foreign policy end the Cold War and dissolve the Soviet Union – or were those outcomes ?inevitable,? regardless of Reagan? What was Reagan?s worst foreign policy mistake – and why did he make it?

In this lecture Mr. Salsman provides answers to these intriguing questions.
