WE THE PRESIDENTS explores how American presidents over the last century, from Warren G. Harding to Donald Trump, have shaped today's world from the birth of supply-side economics in 1921 to the crisis on Ukraine borders a century later.

  • The roots of today's Ukraine crisis were established when NATO, with President Clinton's encouragement, chose to expand eastward after the fall of the Soviet Union. Expanding NATO would be the most fateful error of American policy in the entire post-cold-war era...And it is doubly unfortunate considering the total lack of any necessity for this move, American diplomat George F. Kennan predicted in 1997. (page 435)
  • Ronald Reagan predicted today's trade tensions in 1988 when he cautioned, We should beware of the demagogues who are ready to declare a trade war against our friends...all while cynically waving the American flag. (page 553)
  • President Eisenhower planted the seeds of America's troubled involvement in the Middle East in 1953 when he orchestrated a CIA led covert coup to overthrow Iran's democratically-elected government after a dispute over oil profits. (page 181)
  • Treasury Secretary Mellon revolutionized the nation's taxation policies in 1921 when he declared the best way to stimulate an economy is through polices that encourage investment in factories, innovation and training. Today we know Mellon's scientific taxation as supply-side economics. (page 49)
