Description
Acquired in 2008, the Jude Wanniski papers in the Hoover Institution Archives document the career of a journalist and consultant who, from the early 1970s until his death in 2005, sought to influence both popular opinion and the political establishment in the United States. As an editor of the Wall Street Journal, and then as the head of his own consulting firm, Polyconomics, Inc., Wanniski was a tireless advocate of supply-side economics, a term that he devised after becoming acquainted with the ideas of the economists Arthur Laffer and Robert Mundell. In opposition to Keynesian doctrine, Wanniski and other supply-siders promoted tax reductions and a reduced role for government as means of promoting capital formation and economic growth.
