Carter after a Fortnight

Buckley Jr., W.M.F.
February 1977
National Review;2/18/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 6, p222
The article analyzes the performance of United States President Jimmy Carter. According to the author, President Carter has not addressed the principal problems of modern United States. In respect of the economy, Carter is doing the routine things like previous administrators. In mid Thirties John Maynard Keynes wrote a letter to President Roosevelt suggesting Keynesian remedies to cure the depression. Keynes criticized Roosevelt on the grounds that his deficit spending had not been done on a grand enough scale to put the American economy back to work. It is opined that Carter is subject to the same criticism today.
