Integrated Care Physicians has the distinct honor of welcoming Dr. Arthur B. Laffer as our new Board Member.
Arthur B. Laffer is the founder and chairman of Laffer Associates, an economic research and consulting firm.
Dr. Laffer’s economic acumen and influence in triggering a worldwide tax-cutting movement in the 1980s have earned him the distinction in many publications as “The Father of Supply-Side Economics.” One of his earliest successes in shaping public policy was his involvement in Proposition 13, the groundbreaking California initiative that drastically cut property taxes in the state in 1978.
Dr. Laffer was a member of President Reagan’s Economic Policy Advisory Board for both of his two terms (1981-1989) and was a founding member of the Reagan Executive Advisory Committee for the presidential race of 1980. He also advised Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on fiscal policy in the UK during the 1980s.
In June 2019, Dr. Laffer was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Donald Trump.
