Art Laffer

My dear friend and mentor, Art Laffer, will join me on the set of CNBC’s “Kudlow & Company” tonight as co-host.

Art and I, along with the rest of our guests, will dive headfirst into all the latest economic and political developments—paying particular attention to inflation, interest rates, the Fed, and the crazy markets, here and abroad.

As Bush’s lower tax rates bring in record revenue streams, I thought it would be fitting to put up a graph of Art’s famous “Laffer Curve.” It’s right out of the Laffer playbook.

(Now all we need is for those pork aficionados down in D.C. to show some fiscal responsibility for once...)
