We've had massive job creation under both Keynesian economics and Supply-Side economics. That is mostly about demand and new industry.

But what we've never had is a balanced budget under Supply-Side economics.
Slick Willie was 100% right. The math doesn't add up. And it is that simple. Period.
Keynesian and supply-side economics are not at all mutually exclusive. In many ways, Reagan was a staunch Keynesian.

Reagan... a Keynesian? In which sense?
Was his dearest friend Thatcher Keynesian too? I don't think so...

Fight a recession by financing tax cuts with deficit spending? That's Keynesian.
