WALTER W. HELLER
Signed transcript of his appearance on Meet the Press in 1976
Pamphlet signed: "Walter W. Heller", 6½x8½, 9 pages. Printed transcript from an appearance by Heller on NBC-TV's Meet the Press, April 11, 1976, signed on the front cover. Walter Wolfgang Heller (1915-1987) chaired President Kennedy's Council of Economic Advisers. He was the chief architect of JFK's cut in marginal tax rates, credited with boosting the economy.Although Heller was a Keynesian and a Democrat, the success of this tax cut was cited in later years as a precedent by Republican Presidents.The day after Kennedy's assassination, Heller met in the Oval Office with President Johnson and proposed the idea of a "War on Poverty," which Johnson enthusiastically embraced. He resigned, however, when Johnson escalated the Vietnam War without raising taxes to pay for it, correctly predicting that inflation would result. After leaving government, Heller returned to the University of Minnesota, attracting several top scholars to the school's Economics Department. Slightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
