The Browning of Detroit

Langworth, Richard M.
January 1981
National Review;1/23/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 1, p24
The article features the contributions of U.S. President Jimmy Carter to the decline of the automobile industry. The role of the Carter administration in torpedoing the industry must be understood in two ways. His economic policies created a recession. Oxymoronic regulations imposed by the administration reduced the ability of the industry to cope with that recession. If the U.S. automobile industry is to compete with formidable rivals like the Japanese, things will have to change fast. The new administration of President Ronald Reagan must address this problem.
