Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The arguments over the economic policies of the Reagan Administration will continue until sufficient time has elapsed for a consensus to be possible. In the meantime, it is necessary for contemporary scholars to record their opinions as a base for the consensus. Campagna has recorded his conclusions based on considerable research on Reagan Administration policies. He begins by describing what was planned by the government. From there, he discusses what actually happened, and devotes the remainder of the work to his opinion of what has been left with which the future must deal. Campagna concludes that the Reagan economic policies failed. He establishes a position for others to attack or defend in their own publications in the continuing argument.

Book News Annotation:

An examination and evaluation of the Reagan economic program. Part I sets out the aims of the program. Part II deals with the results of the economic plan. Part III is concerned with the legacy of the Reagan administration's economic policies. Campagna (economics, U. of Vermont) concludes that the economic program was basically a failure.
