Something does not seem right in this photo: We’re pleased to share this wonderful photo from the @POTUS and @FLOTUS visit to see the Carters in Plains, Ga.! Thank you President and Mrs. Biden! pic.twitter.com/QcA33iUev4— The Carter Center (@CarterCenter) May 4, 2021 The Bidens look gigantic compared to the Carters. What happened?

A Reevaluation of Jimmy Carter’s Presidency

A new documentary film called Carterland and Jonathan Alter’s biography His Very Best: Jimmy Carter, a Life (ebook) are among the recent media attempting to reconsider and recontextualize the presidency of Jimmy Carter.

Why do the Carters look so tiny alongside Joe Biden and his wife Jill in this picture?

You don’t need special gear to create this optical trickery. If you have an iPhone 11 or 12 you too can loom large over a former US presidentHi Carly. As our resident photography expert, I have a question. Something about this photo featuring Joe and Jill Biden and former president Jimmy Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter seems … off?It sure does. Where to begin … The scale of Biden v Rosalynn is very unusual – he looks three times the size of her and even though the natural physical c...

Inflation and stagflation are the great instructors

Stagflation, which reigned during the presidency of Jimmy Carter, occurs during an unusual confluence of events: high inflation, low economic growth and high unemployment. Normally, high inflation happens during periods of rapid economic expansion and low unemployment. On the opposite side, low economic growth and high unemployment normally occur during periods of low inflation. Stagflation, which combines the worst of everything, is particularly hard on the middle and lower classes, whose membe...

How Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson popped up on TV just when I needed them

I was watching TV in bed when I felt the strange slippery feeling on my leg. I froze. Was it crawling or was I just imagining it? Was it a rat? Snake? Considering the wildlife that has been attracted to my home lately, anything was possible. As I jumped out of bed, the TV suddenly shut itself off. I finally forced myself to look down at my leg. The remote control had somehow glued itself to me and, when I moved it turned off the TV. Interesting, because I often have to fight with the remote to d...
