The mission of the Committee to Unleash Prosperity is to educate policy makers and the public about government policies that have been proven, in practice, to maximize economic growth and equitable prosperity in America and around the world.
Supply-Side is not, as defamed by its detractors, “trickle-down,” enacting big economic advantages, such as tax cuts, for the rich while workers get scraps. It is “across-the-board.” The Committee’s creed, as stated by Adam Smith in Wealth of Nations holds that “It is the great multiplication of the productions of all the different arts, in consequence of the division of labour, which occasions, in a well-governed society, that universal opulence which extends itself to the lowest ranks of the people.” (Emphasis supplied.)
As elegantly stated by Supply-Side progenitor John F. Kennedy, “a rising tide lifts all boats.” Both workers and investors prospered thanks to Reagan and Clinton Supply-Side measures. Committee co-founder Larry Kudlow, together with co-author historian Brian Domitrovic (now of the Laffer Center) elegantly established the historic status of President Kennedy in the Supply-Side pantheon in JFK and the Reagan Revolution: A Secret History of American Prosperity.
The Committee’s mission is not partisan and not political. Our mission simply is to identify those policies best suited to unleashing prosperity and to educate policy makers on the best practices to achieve equitable prosperity.
