The Reagan administration used the fiscal policy known as supply-side or "trickle-down" Economics, which aimed to increase economic activities by increasing capital. To that end, tax cuts were made to the higher income brackets, and the capital gains tax was reduced. The plan was to collect more taxes through the increased production generated from capital investments.
