The Reagan administration has pursued a supply-side management approach that is the logical correlate of supply-side economics. This approach has dominated decisions on budgeting and financial management, regulation, information policy, procurement, personnel, and program management. Supply-side management theory sprang from a public mood that had grown suspicious of process values and saw the federal government as an enterprise devoted to the goal of sustaining itself. Supply-side management has brought to the forefront a renewed emphasis on governmental performance, a potentially lasting legacy, but has failed in other ways.
