Reagan Reconsidered

By Jay Cost ● The Weekly Standard ● 07/17/2017


Henry Olsen offers us a new understanding of Reagan as a politician and thinker anchored in the real problems of everyday Americans. He makes a compelling case that Reagan was at heart a kind of populist whose belief in using government to lift people up meant unburdening them from the demands of the state.
