5% of the world’s population produces 23% of the world’s economic output and growth.They’ve also produced the largest plurality of Nobel Prize winners for science and econ.
Pres. Carter’s problem was that he was naive about how people in the world view actions, something Pres. Obama fails at too – he assumed everyone would see and react as he did and became confused when they didn’t.He was also a micro-manager – he never could let a project or idea start to work without interfering and wanting to make changes, which is a huge failure with a bureaucracy that takes time to even get started.He didn’t understand how to plan for issues – just reactive in nature.
in all, he was a poor President – a nice guy but no someone to lead the US, and even though you may complain about the US’s lack of humility, everyone turns to it when there are problems.
