After Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich finished with the bloggers in the TexasGOPVote blogger room, we were joined by Gingrich adviser Peter Ferrara. Ferrera discussed a wide variety of economic topics with several of the bloggers. In the video below, he provides some interesting insight into the kinds of advice he would provide a future president.
Recently Ferrera wrote an article for Forbes Magazine titled "How to Achieve Higher Wages for Working People". In the article, Ferrara discusses how the tax cuts of the late president, John F. Kennedy brought about rapid economic growth and increases in personal income.
Ferrara quoted President Kennedy as saying, “...is to reduce the burden on private income and the deterrents to private initiative which are imposed by our present tax system – and this administration is pledged to an across-the-board reduction in personal and corporate income tax rates.”
Peter Ferrara discusses economic issues in the TexasGOPVote Blogger Room after the debate.
Ferrara also recently published a book titled America's Ticking Bankruptcy Bomb in which he says, "Record-shattering government spending, taxes, deficits, and debt threaten a downward spiral in the American people's standard of living, ultimately stealing the American dream."
