Ronald Reagan

February 2004
Irish Heroes & Heroines of America;2004, p169
The article profiles former U.S. President and actor Ronald Reagan. Some believe Reagan's efforts turned U.S. around and sped the collapse of Communism. Others, equally passionate, criticize his economic policy, his lack of compassion and a detached management style that may have allowed lawbreaking by some in his administration. Both sides, however, noted that Reagan has set the agenda and, on most issues, outlined the priorities. Discussion on those priorities continues long after Reagan left office.
