Secretary of Treasury Mellon
By: Anna S.
Mellon was very well liked for a majority of the time he served. He did his job so well that he was kept throughout three presidencies. Many of his tax policies successfully created economic prosperity. By cutting these, the economy could get back on its feet after the war, and unemployment rates lowered significantly. Much of the prosperity found in the 1920s can be attributed to him. Many thought that by cutting tax rates the federal income would decrease, however Mellon still managed to decrease national debt substantially.
