This paper discusses Reaganomics and how it has affected the United States. It compares different economic statistics before, during, and after Reagan's years in office and analyzes them. It talks about the Cold War and argues that the way Reagan handled it was the best and only way to topple the Evil Empire. It also discusses his character and how he is completely different from the way that the popular media portrayed him and continues to portray him.

From the Paper:

"On numerous occasions, critics have undermined Reagan and his ability to accomplish all that he did. Two examples of these critics undermining Reagan's intelligence and success as a president came from two of his serious biographers "Lou Cannon, a journalist who covered Reagan both as a governor and as President, and Edmund Morris" did not identify a credible key to his success, relying in slightly different ways on the conventional explanation that his success was related to his background as an actor. The title of Cannon's book, President Reagan: The Role of a Lifetime, was obviously chosen to emphasize the link between Reagan's presidency and his past career."
