    So how can the NYR of Books say “it rose under Reagan to approximately 15 percent”? That’s because in Reagan’s second year there was a very serious recession, and the poverty rate reached 15%. But the NYR of Books creates the impression that
    it rose during the 8 years that Reagan was in office, which is simply not true. Poverty fell under Reagan. it was Jimmy Carter who presided over a surge in poverty."

    We got you first time!

    I know noone cares, but I thought I should correct myself here, after reading more about the economic policy under Reagan and its effects, I shouldn't have defended it here.
