Notes:
The United States suffered oil shortages and difficult economic times while Carter was president. Many associate him with the bad economy, but others think he deserves credit for early deregulation moves and for supporting the Federal Reserve as they tightened money. Supporting the Federal Reserve took political courage because although the tight money policy helped in the long run, it added to the short-term stress on the economy.
