Supply-Side Follies is a progressive political and economic challenge to the current George W. Bush policies. It debunks commonly held assumptions of conservative economic policies centered on the obsession that tax cuts led to greater productivity and prosperity. These fundamentally flawed policies are setting the United States up for a major economic downturn in the near future. The 21st century knowledge economy requires a fundamentally different approach to boosting growth than simply cutting taxes on the richest investors. The alternative is not, however, to resurrect old Keynesian, populist economics as too many Democrats hope to do. Rather, as Rob Atkinson makes clear, our long-term national welfare and prosperity depends on new economic strategy that fits the realities of the 21st century global, knowledge-based economy: innovation-based growth economics.

Atkinson begins with the premise that supply-side economics is about taxes and incentives. Evidently, he has never read George Gilder whose recent book "Knowledge and Power" explains for the umpteenth time that capitalism works because it sustains verifiable/ falsifiable experiments by entrepreneurs that produce innovation and progress.

It's amazing that such liberal twaddle get's published. While I'll be first to admit that I only read sections of the book, I would expect that these were the sections the author felt were best representative of his overall theory. This book is an attack on supply side economics that focuses primarily on the Bush era - an era when Republicans seemed to waffle and even follow the Democrats path. Hardly the perfect example to use since most true conservatives really wouldn't have held either Bush up an shining examples of good policy making. The author uses "facts" that left me scratching my head and wondering what he was thinking. For example, he shows evidence that cutting taxes doesn't increase savings. True, but it does increase spending which in turn greases the economic wheels. Why would you even talk about savings or hours worked (another topic used to prove his points) - these are relative to people's values. Unfortunately, our society has lost many of its core values including savings and a strong work ethic. Both these can be credited to a entitlement society created in part by government give-aways. The entitlement spiral will keep on expanding as people watch others getting freebies and asking themselves why they are working so hard and wanting freebies and entitlements for themselves. This is the new economy - the one that the book ignores. It's also the economy created by years of liberal politics from both sides. The bottom line is don't waste your time on this politically biased book.

This is an excellent overview of the history of supply side economics and why it continues to be perpetuated by the Republican party. Atkinson further explains that we need to move beyond the supply-side (cut taxes and government spending) and the demand-side (government spending to boost demand) economics. Instead, we need to recognize that the fundamentals of our economics have changed to innovation and knowledge-based. Therefore, government policies must respond to this change and look at ways to improve innovation and help entrepreneurs. This, Atkinson explains, cannot come from simply cutting taxes since the availability of capital is not the fundamental problem of our economy. The problem is a lack of domestic investment opportunities. He further explains that the general consensus is that any gains from tax cuts really were realized from the cut in the top rate from 70% to the high 30% that occurred under Reagan. The marginal benefits that could be achieved from further cuts are really a distraction from the real changes that are needed.
