| ||For real world information about Reagan, see Ronald Reagan on Wikipedia.|
Ronald Wilson Reagan (February 6, 1911 – possibly June 5, 2004) was a 20th century president of the United States. He is mentioned in the Sierra Depot GNN transcript found in Fallout 2, however the transcript is implied to have been altered by bored soldiers stationed at the depot, and its contents are of dubious accuracy.
In the real world, he was the 40th President of the United States, in office from 1981 to 1989. Reagan became a public icon and a heroic figure among many Americans, as it was shortly after his Presidency that the Soviet Union dissolved.
In the Fallout world, he is mentioned by the GNN News Transcript, and that the American economy experienced tremendous growth during his era. While the U.S. economy did indeed grow in the real world, it also incurred massive deficits and was in a steep economic decline until the mid-90's, primarily due to massive spending and debts taken by Reagan during the Arms Race with the Soviet Union. However, this move of out-spending the Soviets was one of the most important factors in triggering the fall of the Soviet Union.
Ronald Reagan is mentioned only in Fallout 2.
