Under Eisenhower there was a large governmental economic stimulus in the form of legislation establishing the National System of Interstate and Defense Highways. Construction began on new highways that linked the nation. It was modeled on Germany's highways -- the autobahn -- which Eisenhower had experienced during his tour of duty in Europe. Ninety percent of the construction was to be paid for by federal tax dollars and ten percent by the states.
The Eisenhower years were marked by low unemployment and low inflation. And the national debt indeed declined further, as it had under Truman. When Truman left office the gross federal debt was down to around 71.4 percent of GDP; when Eisenhower left office it was down to 60.4 percent. The U.S. Economy from Eisenhower to Carter

In 1954, the 92 percent marginal rate decreased to 91 percent under Eisenhower. The maximum tax on long-term capital gains was 25 percent -- a rate that remained in place for a decade. From Eisenhower to Obama: What the Wealthiest Americans Pay in Taxes - Yahoo! News
