Praise

“To some degree, this book is a work of humility…And it’s easy to read this as a recommendation that Donald Trump emulate JFK as he pursues tax reform.”
The National Review

“The authors should be cheered for what they’ve done…Larry Kudlow and Brian Domitrovic have thankfully written an essential history that will hopefully remind readers of all stripes that low taxes and sound money are good for freedom and prosperity, and happily are the property of both major political parties.”
John Tammy, Forbes.com
 
“The authors make a thought-provoking argument that the same economic strategy would solve the economic problems in our nation today. Moreover, they believe it would solve other problems, such as inequality and damage to the environment…Recommend[ed] for those who appreciate economic theory and/or 20th-century history.”
Library Journal

“Economic growth: What a great idea!  Now, if only we could get the Democrats to agree that growth is a good idea, and if only we could get the Republicans to be more persuasive in making the case for growth…[This] book by Larry Kudlow, an economist in the Reagan White House and, more recently, a CNBC host, and Brian Domitrovic, a senior associate at the Laffer Center for Supply-Side Economics, is a strong first step for the GOP.”
—Breitbart

“Lawrence Kudlow, one of [Republican Presidential nominee Donald] Trump’s key tax policy advisers, has compiled [a] critical history in compelling fashion in JFK and the Reagan Revolution…Co-authored by economic historian Brian Domitrovic, the newly released book focuses on John F. Kennedy’s conversion to supply-side tax cuts as a seminal political and economic event that led to the Reagan supply-side revolution, which was forced on Bill Clinton after the Democrats’ disastrous political defeat in 1994…The tax-cut strategy, in fact, is the most massively under-celebrated cure for the economic doldrums that has been devised, but even media conservatives and Republican Party lawmakers have largely ignored the history that Mr. Trump would do well to vividly recap, especially since Bill’s presidency thrived on what Hillary [Clinton] caustically mocks as ‘trickle-down economics.’”
Washington Times

“John F. Kennedy campaigned for president in 1960 targeting 5% real economic growth. After he was elected, he achieved that goal, doubling the slow growth of the Eisenhower 1950s…This history is recounted in detail in the new book by Larry Kudlow and Brian Domitrovic, ‘JFK and the Reagan Revolution: A Secret History of American Prosperity.’”
Investor’s Business Daily

“Larry Kudlow and Brian Domitrovic have teamed to up deliver a fantastic account of the Kennedy tax reform of 1964 – all the more relevant today, as we once again need leaders who can “get the economy moving again,” as Kennedy promised in the 1960 election.” 
—Nathan Lewis, Forbes.com

“America can return to prosperity and robust economic growth by looking to the Kennedy-Reagan model of income tax cuts and a strong, stable dollar, a new book argues. ‘JFK and the Reagan Revolution: A Secret History of American Prosperity,’ by Lawrence Kudlow and Brian Domitrovic…tells the story of how the tax and monetary policies of Presidents Kennedy and Reagan triggered impressive economic growth.”
—New York Sun
 
“A fascinating account of the internal battles within John F. Kennedy’s administration over cutting taxes and keeping the dollar linked to gold.”
—Forbes Magazine

“JFK and Reagan Revolution by Larry Kudlow and Brian Domitrovic is a concise, cogent, and convincing economic history of the birth of supply side economics… [the book] sets the record straight and is a compelling and brisk account of what happened along the way…”
—Richard H. Clarida

“It can be argued – and it is in a new book by economist Larry Kudlow and historian Brian Domitrovic titled JFK and the Reagan Revolution: A Secret History of American Prosperity – that Reagan learned key lessons about pro-growth tax policy from one of his supply-side predecessors. As much as the left-wing Kennedy clan of recent times hates to admit it, President John F. Kennedy, a Democrat, turned out to be a supply-sider…President-elect Trump has an opportunity to become the next successful supply-sider in the White House. He can do so by picking the right people for key economic policy jobs, and taking to heart the lessons offered by Kudlow and Domitrovic in their insightful JFK and the Reagan Revolution.”
RealClearMarkets

“A compelling and important book, which should be delivered to every senator and congressman as required reading.”
–US Review Of Books

“John F. Kennedy, like Ronald Reagan, deliberately cut income tax rates with the intent of spurring economic growth, and the plan worked beautifully. This exceptional work of economic history by Lawrence Kudlow and Brian Domitrovic finally lays it all out.”
–The Independent Review
