For many of the Americans, they lost all their money and became very poor. Many banks shut down due to the lack of money they each contained.

Reagan believed that small businesses were the backbone of the American economy. Cannon (2000, 736) writes, “Reagan’s principal mission in the presidency, or so he thought, was to rein in a government he considered an obstacle to economic opportunity and human liberty.” Reagan felt that free-market capitalism was being suppressed by a growing government. This perspective was evident in most all of “Reaganomics,” including the areas of tax reform, inflation, and the national debt. Although Reagan was never able to fix the national debt crisis, inflation and unemployment rates fell considerably.

Executive Summary Mature and Cyclical Product Market The mature market is the third stage in the product life cycle that the sales reach their peak (see Figure 1) and the market becomes saturated as there are fewer new customers. The majority of the consumers who are ever going to purchase the product have already done so.
