This week The Pack is joined by Dr. Art Laffer. (on Twitter @LafferCenter) His economic acumen and influence in triggering a worldwide tax-cutting movement in the 1980s earned him the distinction in many publications as “The Father of Supply-Side Economics.” The Laffer Curve is one of the primary theoretical constructs of supply-side economics, illustrating the tradeoff between tax rates and actual tax revenues.
We talk about politics, Taxes - his new book Taxes Have Consequences. Why Michigan sits above Ohio and more. Dr. Laffer tells stories from the past and how it relates to where we are now. Sit back have a drink and call the accountant.
