In the Green Room: Economist Arthur Laffer Discusses America's Financial Future

Posted By Brandon Stewart On March 22, 2010 @ 10:00 am In Economics | Comments Disabled

Yesterday, former Reagan administration economic adviser Arthur Laffer stopped by the Heritage Foundation for a lecture titled, “Return to Prosperity: How America Can Regain Its Economic Superpower Status”. Laffer popularized what has become to be known as the “Laffer Curve [1]” which helped demonstrate that increased taxation can be counterproductive in the long-term as it leaves citizens with less resources and depresses economic growth.

After his speech, Laffer sat down for an “In the Green Room [2]” segment where he discussed the roots of the financial crisis, how President Bush and Obama have mishandled the problem, and what to expect in 2010 and 2011.
