NEW YORK, Sept. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Committee to Unleash Prosperity, founded by respected economists Dr. Arthur B. Laffer, Larry Kudlow, Steve Forbes, and Steve Moore, launched CommitteeToUnleashProsperity.com. The website will contain a daily aggregator, The Supply Side, that gathers top economic news articles. Together, these resources will serve as the "one stop shop" for supply-side economics commentary, as well as analysis of the 2016 Presidential candidates' economic platforms. The site will feature articles and Tweets from the Committee's founders, as well as contributions from other experts.
CommitteeToUnleashProsperity.com offers detailed background information on the pillars of supply-side economics—including low flat rate taxes, free trade, sound money, decreased regulation, reduced spending, and the rule of constitutional law. The homepage spotlights video footage from the Committee's recent events and thoughts from recent dinners with Governor Bobby Jindal, Governor John Kasich, Governor Scott Walker, Governor Mike Huckabee, Governor Rick Perry, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Lindsey Graham, and Carly Fiorina amongst others.
Longtime Reagan advisor, CNBC Senior Contributor and radio host of the nationally-syndicated "The Larry Kudlow Show," Larry Kudlow said, "We founded the Committee to remind the public just how much is at stake in the upcoming election: a choice between economic growth and jobs that benefits all in society, and the stagnation that leads to social conflict and class warfare. We need the candidates to recapture Reagan's vision of a growing, hopeful nation that is exceptional in the world. Our news portal will highlight this."
Dr. Arthur B. Laffer, supply-side pioneer and creator of the Laffer Curve, said: "The Committee's website will be consistently updated with articles and editorials from numerous thought leaders in the economic world. I believe it will serve as an invaluable resource throughout the election cycle."
Economist and former Wall Street Journal economics editor Steve Moore said: "We look forward to making this website the go-to place for economic news coverage, one informed by the genuine principles of the free market economy, which is the engine of growth and social mobility for all."
Former presidential candidate and publisher of Forbes, Steve Forbes commented: "There is a real hunger in America for optimism, a fact-based, realist optimism that builds on a foundation of practical experience. Among the Committee's members, we have decades of accumulated experience at implementing the policies that lead to sustained economic growth."
Committee Member, New York City mogul, former mayoral candidate and radio host of New York's Number #1 Sunday radio show, the Cats Radio Roundtable, John Catsimatidis welcomed the launch of CommitteeToUnleashProsperity.com: "As a concerned citizen of our great country, I see the price that people pay when government leaders forget the source of all prosperity: the honest, hard working American worker striving for success for themselves and their family. The Committee members understand that deeply."

The Committee to Unleash Prosperity was founded to combat America's "growth gap" by promoting an agenda that will revitalize America's economy. In the past decade and a half, under bi-partisan rule, U.S. economic growth has diminished to roughly 2% annually—a significant decrease from its Post-World War II average of 3.5%.
The Committee to Unleash Prosperity is working to change this. Our focus is simple:
We want to turn America around and restore American exceptionalism.
We want to provide new hope, growth, and opportunity for everyone.
We believe this is the great challenge of our time.
Therefore in pursuit of rapid growth, we support the following principles:
A broad-based, low rate, flat tax
Limited government spending
Rule of constitutional law
We believe these building blocks will restore American prosperity, and we are dedicated to promoting economic growth and opportunity for all. Please join us:
