Hillsdale College Launches New Online Teaching Series: “Supply-Based Economics and American Prosperity with Art Laffer”


HILLSDALE, Michigan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hillsdale College announces its newest online teaching series, “Supply-Side Economics and American Prosperity with Art Laffer.” The free teaching series, released August 23, is taught by award-winning economist Dr. Art Laffer, who is joined by Brian Domitrovic, Steve Forbes, Larry Kudlow, Stephen Moore, Amity Shlaes and Dr. Larry P. Arnn, to teach the foundations of macroeconomic theory.

“We are delighted to have Dr. Laffer teach this subject. He has studied America’s economic history closely, particularly over the past 100 years since the advent of the income tax,” says Kyle Murnen, Director of Online Learning. “Dr. Laffer is a serious and influential economist who helped shape the economic policies that ended the stagflation of the 1970s and put America on the path to economic prosperity.

In 2019, Laffer received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. President Trump observed that Laffer “has proven that the most powerful way to grow the economy and increase government revenue is not to raise tax rates, but to adopt strong incentives that unleash the power of human freedom and innovate, create jobs and provide greater opportunity for all Americans, and he’s proven it time and time again.

Hailed as “the father of supply-side economics,” Laffer explains his economic theory and the eponymous Laffer Curve in this all-new teaching series that combines the best of an online course with the dynamism of a documentary.

“Students will be thrilled with this new education experience from Hillsdale College,” said Juan Davalos, director of e-learning marketing. “The e-learning team has created a teaching experience that is not only deeply informative, but also incredibly engaging.”

“Supply-Side Economics” examines the five realms of macroeconomics: taxes, government spending, regulations, sound money, and trade. The eight-episode series includes lessons on the following topics:

  • the Laffer curve

  • a last century history of taxation in America

  • income inequality

  • why some states prosper while others don’t

  • the consequences of redistribution

  • trade, debts and deficits

  • Dr. Laffer’s Recommendations for Unleashing Economic Prosperity Again
