Carter Unraveling

November 1977
National Review;11/25/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 46, p1342
The article discusses the policies of U.S. President Jimmy Carter. A guaranteed annual income program has recently been proposed by Carter. The government's energy program that is based on an assumption of scarcity, has nothing to say about the advancing energy technology which is important to an expanding economy. According to supporters of Carter, the government's welfare proposals would cost 2.8 billion dollars more than the present programs. However, some politicians were able to show that Carter's welfare proposals would add 14.7 billion dollars to the current 20 billion dollars welfare cost, which is an increase of 70 percent.
