Reagan-Era Tax Policy Revisited

Last month the Miller Center of Public Affairs and the Jack Kemp Foundation "hosted a day-long conference on April 18 that brought together key figures who helped enact major tax-reform legislation during the Reagan administration. The gathering recorded for history the inside story of the Tax Reforms of 1981 and 1986, which were achieved at a time of deep partisan division, and explored how those lessons can be applied today.

"Participants included former U.S. senators, Reagan aides, and congressional staffers. The conference featured a special keynote interview with former Sen. Bill Bradley conducted by veteran journalist Morton Kondracke."

Archived webcasts of the conference are here.
