Equilibrium is the point at which the demand and supply curves intersect—the single price at which the quantity demanded and the quantity supplied are the same.

 Supply Side Economics
The response of private savings and labor supply to the Reagan tax cuts was minimal: the labor supply did not increase and the effect on private savings was swamped by the reduction in public savings (the increase in the budget deficit).
Unfortunately for the hypothesis, the fall in the incomes of the very rich after 1993 was not due to a reduction in their labor supply but rather a simple tax- shifting of incomes from 1993 to 1992 in expectation of the increase in tax rates.
The reason why supply side effects do not work is very simple: the estimated responses of labor supply and savings to tax rate cuts are too small to generate the extra revenues that would maintain a tax rate cut revenue neutral.
