Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Carter administration took office at an unfortunate time as far as economics is concerned. The economy was floundering, and the oil crisis and energy problems were all too prevalent. The author explains that as Carter turned to fighting inflation, he abandoned the traditional Democratic agenda and became a forerunner of Reagan. In the end, he did not conquer inflation, but he did sacrifice his ambitious programs for restructuring government, crafting a lasting energy program, and reforming the tax structure, welfare, and health care.

Book News Annotation:

Traces the economic policy of US President Jimmy Carter from conception to execution without trying to analyze the flaws of thinking and procedure that so many others have detailed. Reviews the economic problems in the early 1970s and the part they played in the 1976 campaign, describes Carter's initiatives and how they differed in the first and second half of his administration, and summarizes and critiques the macroeconomic policies. Also discusses trade and energy matters, reforms, economic issues in the 1980 campaign, and the legacy Carter left.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
