A Century of Reagan

Today marks the centenary of President Ronald Reagan's birth.

In my estimation, his greatest single accomplishment is this: he gave America its confidence back. After the turmoil of Vietnam, counter-culture rebellion, oil shocks, inflation, Watergate, and Carter - by the middle of his second term America had a gleam in its eye and hope for the future again.

He accomplished this by trusting us - allowing the free market to work, and allowing creators to create. He had a faith in liberty and capitalism when it was under challenge from all sides.
