supply-side economics definition

An economic theory that holds that, by lowering taxes on corporations, government can stimulate investment in industry and thereby raise production, which will, in turn, bring down prices and control inflation. The theory also favors improvements in education and training to make workers more productive and reducing the welfare state to spur individuals to work harder. Supply-siders focus on increasing the supply of goods rather than stimulating demand by granting subsidies to the public. Supply-side economics influenced the presidency of Ronald Reagan.
