Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. “Proposals for Welfare”

Firing Line Videos, Hoover Institution, taped on April 23, 1973, uploaded to YouTube on December 19, 2012.

Guest: Jimmy Carter


This show was the first nationally televised appearance of Jimmy Carter. In this encounter, Governor Carter sounds quite conservative in talking about welfare and incentives, and specifically the advantages in having job-training programs and attendant industry dispersed throughout the state.
