President Ronald Reagan

     Marta Weeks says rightly that the Nixon policy was continued by another much maligned American President, Ronald Reagan. She says:
     The Reagan Administration also devised a strategy to bring an end to the Cold War with Communist USSR. The key point of the strategy was to strangle the income of the number one revenue producer for the soviet Union--oil exports--by lowering the price while upping the ante in the arms race, causing great expenditures. Meanwhile, the cash crunch would be exacerbated by increasing the material needs and expectations of the populace (from an article by Larry Nation in the AAPG Explorer, Jan. 1996 issue.)
