Why Laffer Invented Supply-Side

Interesting little graf here.

Maher seemed to think that he’d invited on his show a real right-fanatic, someone who’d talk about soaking the poor and then start quoting from the Aphorisms of Gordon Gekko. What he got instead was a man [Laffer] who talked about how much he loved JFK and in his tax policies only desired to get government more and more money. He never really wanted to “starve the beast,” as did Milton Friedman, and actually limit the scope of the state, but only wanted to help government create bigger and better programs

Another friggin' Statist, as the TakiMag writer suggests.
