Productivity, as measured by the output per hour by the business sector, grew at a lower rate during the Reagan years than the 7 years prior. The growth rate of 1.3% during Reagan’s tenure was .2% higher than the 6 years afterwards, but .3% lower than the years preceding (Niskanen & Moore 1996). Inflation is an increase in the average price level and is not a positive occurrence. When Reagan took office, the REAGAN-SIDE ECONOMICS consumer price index (CPI) was at a high 13.5%, by the end of his terms, the CPI had been decreased to 4.1% (Niskanen & Moore 1996). Those who are critical of Reagan’s policy speak of the explosion of the United States’ budget deficit during the 1980s.

For example, of the four main parts of heavy industry; Coal, Iron, Steel and Oil, only the targets for oil production were met and exceeded by 1932. However, the economy grew by 14% every year and the rest of heavy industry did grow, Iron went from an annual production of 3.3 million tonnes in 1928 to 6.2 million in 1932. The second plan (1933-38) was a more conservative version of the first, with a larger focus on consumer goods. However, these were superseded towards the end of the plan with a focus on military equipment and production, as Stalin was predicting a war with Nazi Germany. Transport and electricity output was expanded to help meet the growing demand of industrialisation.
