More about Dr. Arthur Laffer:
Arthur B. Laffer is the founder and chairman of Laffer Associates, an economic research and consulting firm.
Dr. Laffer’s economic acumen and influence in triggering a worldwide 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), 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 of 1980. He also advised Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on fiscal policy in the UK during the 1980s.
In 2019, Dr. Laffer was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Donald Trump.
Dr. Laffer currently sits on the board of directors or advisors of a number of private and public companies, including ARK Investment Management, Armor Concepts, BelHealth Investment Partners, Care Advantage, Gridiron Capital, Integrated Care Physicians, NexPoint Real Estate Finance, NexPoint Residential Trust, Precision Diagnostics, Preverity, Tenth Avenue Holdings, The Service Companies, VerifyMe and VineBrook Homes Trust. Dr. Laffer has authored over twenty books including New York Times Best Seller An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of States (Wiley 2014) and, most recently, Trumponomics: Inside the America First Plan to Revive Our Economy (All Points Books 2018).
