Reduction of the oil prices by almost fifty percent was the most impressive achievement of President Reagan's economic plan. The ailing consumer population got a reprieve of approximately one hundred billion shillings that were swept by the inflated prices. [...]
[...] The cost cut was even larger after 1982 when a reduction of up to sixteen percent was achieved. The department of defense was the main target for the deflation of public budget and that was the reason Reagan did not advocate for any use of weapons during the cold war. It is notable that the plan led to a tactical slashing down of the domestic public expenditure even with better compensations for the military.
