Chamber of Commerce Members will be spending breakfast with Arthur B. Laffer, the founder and chairman of Laffer Associates, an institutional investment management firm utilizing diverse investment strategies. On Tuesday, Aug 20th, Dr. Laffer will speak to the newly united Williamson County Chamber of Commerce at Jamison Hall in the Factory from 8-9:30 a.m.
Dr. Laffer’s economic acumen and influence in triggering a world-wide tax-cutting movement in the 1980s have earned him the distinction in many publications as “The Father of Supply-Side Economics.” One of his earliest successes in shaping public policy was his involvement in Proposition 13, the groundbreaking California initiative that drastically cut property taxes in the state in 1978. Dr. Laffer was a member of President Reagan’s Economic Policy Advisory Board for both of his two terms (1981-1989). He was a member of the Executive Committee of the Reagan/Bush Finance Committee in 1984 and was a founding member of the Reagan Executive Advisory Committee for the presidential race in 1980. He also advised Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on fiscal policy in the U.K. during the 1980s.
