Summary:
"It is often assumed that left-of-center governments in the US and Britain supported policies that would lead to ever-increasing public spending and higher taxes. Right-of-center governments, by way of contrast, are expected to support policies that reduce public spending and lower taxes. These characterizations were reinforced with the advent of Reaganomics and Thatcherite economic policy in the 1980s."
