Description


President Reagan's Conservative Fiscal Policy explores how the Reagan administration's (1981-1988) fiscal policy changed the national economy and adversely impacted unemployment among African Americans. This work features detailed analysis of Reaganomics, supply-side fiscal policies, and major budget cuts to domestic employment training programs, such as the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) Program, as they relate to African Americans' unemployment levels and President Reagan's style of leadership and conservative ideology. Author Chiazam Ugo Okoye also scrutinizes three specific tax relief acts: The Economic Recovery and Tax Act, 1981 (ERTA); The Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act, 1982 (TEFRA); and the Tax Reform Act of 1986 (TRA).
