The Growth Experiment
How the New Tax Policy Is Transforming the U. S. Economy
(Basic Books, 1990)

by Lawrence B. Lindsey


“An authoritative argument for the tax cuts of the Reagan years…one of the most cogent and knowledgeable of the supply-side advocates…provides us with what is likely to stand as the most credible and coherent supply-side account of the revolution in U.S. tax policy that triumphed in the 1980s.” – Peter Truell, Wall Street Journal

“A rigorously analytical book that refutes [the] objections to lower taxes. Let’s hope official Washington reads it and carefully applies its lessons.” – Lawrence Kudlow, Fortune

“A spirited supply-sider’s defense of Reaganomics…[and] a call for radical new tax reform.”
– Howard Gleckman, Business Week

“A careful and sometimes convincing defense of the 1981 tax cut that put fear and loathing into the heart of the economic establishment…Lindsey is the sort of Reaganite liberals as well as conservatives could learn to work with, if not love. One reason to read The Growth Experiment is to get a look at the best face of supply-side economics.”
– Peter Passell, New York Times Book Review
