Supply-Side Economics


Supply-side economics is a group of theories that suggest we should slash capital gains taxes—and lower corporate and business taxes while we're at it.

The folks behind these theories say that policies that help out suppliers and producers (the people who bring goods and services to the economy) have the best effect on making the economy stronger and that we don't need to worry about consumers or the people buying.
