Well I did live through the period, even if it was from afar. Here's one statistic for you:



With around 100 prisoners per 100,000, the United States had an average prison and jail population until 1980. Afterwards it drifted apart considerably. The United States has the highest prison and jail population (2,121,600 in adult facilities in 2016), and the highest incarceration rate in the world (655 per 100,000 population in 2016),.[3][38][39] According to the World Prison Population List (11th edition) there were around 10.35 million people in penal institutions worldwide in 2015.[40] The US had 2,173,800 prisoners in adult facilities in 2015.[41] That means the US held 21.0% of the world's prisoners in 2015, even though the US represented only around 4.4 percent of the world's population in 2015,[42][43]

Yes so do I and I'm sorry for the scare. How husband and wife have behaved with dignity over the years has made them role models for us all.

Here are more statistics:

Inflation rate for 1980: 13.5%
Interest rate for 1980: 18%

There has always been "inequality." How do you propose to end it?

Since you mentioned that, the poverty rate in the U.S. was 13.0% when Reagan took office and 12.8% when he left office.

Well you'll have to refresh my memory here but I thought Obama proposed a tax hike on those earning $250000 per annum, which was rejected by Congress. I tried to google several websites but it seems the Chicago Tribune and others are not allowing European countries access for some reason. I hope this is not the start of a trade war.

Anyway I did find this link:

A tax hike would hurt the economy and the middle class. When there is a tax hike, the wealthy and/or business people are more likely to invest in tax-protected outlets. Therefore the government actually receives less revenue. When there is a tax cut, their business is more likely to increase thus they hire more employees. More employees means more taxpayers and the government receives more revenue.
