Industry deregulation: Airline Deregulation Act Foreign Policy: The Panama Canal Treaty Conservation: Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act Served his presidency under unified government. D Carter deserves this grade because of the effort he put forth to help the economy, considering America was slowly rising from depression. Because the press and public cited Carter for his inability to speak, or listen to others.

As far as leadership, many consider Carter as a better Ex-president than president. Retains the record for the 4th largest number of judicial appoinments. C From the information I gathered concluded his role as chief executive was above average when considering his number of judical appointments. Chief Diplomat One of the best examples of President Carter serving his role as Chief Diplomat was the Camp David Accords. Panama Canal Treaties A Because he took a more accomodating approach
toward this role and ratified the initially unfavored Canal Treaties. C Because of the state America was in when he entered office, he did an average job, and succeeding Nixon makes his role as President also look better.
