Some people think that President Reagan did more damage to this country than he did help it and other people think that he was one of the best presidents we have ever had. However, I think that he was successful in completing his economic goals and not only pleased the American people but did it in a way that he thought was best for this country. Reagan drastically reduced inflation from that of the Carter administration (Reagan Economy and Society Slide 7). Reagan was also successful in his goal of Raising the Gross Domestic Product. Over the course of his administration he raised the GDP thirty-four percent which is an incredible growth when compared to that of other presidents.

The unemployment rate of black is two times greater than unemployment rate of white (Fields and Weller, 2011). In 2011, the black unemployment rate was equal to 16.1 percent, while it was just 7.9 percent for whites (Fields and Weller, 2011). Schnurer (2014) states that “Giving more people a shot at economic success produces greater gains for society because more people are contributing”. According to World Bank research findings the main reason for languishing economy in Arab countries is exclusion of women from economic contribution (Schnurer, 2014). The second example of unequal distribution of income in the US is inequality between income of college graduators and non-college graduators.
Japan’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the third highest ranked globally, raking in US$4730 billion in 2016 (Statistics Times, 2016). In 2015 alone, manufacturing facilities contributed to 20.5% of the country’s GDP (The World Bank, n.d.), showing how important these plants are to the economic growth of the country. Despite the fact that the government has put measures in place to ensure pollutants released by these facilities are kept at a minimum, more can be done. The benefits that arise from keeping limitations on pollutant emission a priority outweigh the pros of rapid product manufacturing, and will eventually lead to a stable, persevering economy. Body GDP is an international measure of a nation’s wealth, and demonstrates the importance of industrialization in Japan’s economy.

The state of the country's economy during a presidency is one of the most important characteristics of a president's success, and both Eisenhower and Johnson thought about their country's wealth. Eisenhower's tenure was marked by a booming economy (Ambrose 347), and he had to find a way not only to preserve it but to benefit from it. During his presidency, the federal spending as a share of GDP decreased by two percent (“Dwight D. Eisenhower: Domestic Affairs”), but still domestic spending increased despite all his attempts not to let that happen by blocking expensive programs (Ambrose 479). Though income and real purchasing power of Americans increased, many people still lived below the poverty line (“Dwight D. Eisenhower: Domestic Affairs”). Mostly they were
