Yep, Carter's presidency had a huge impact on the decline of service industries outside of the US. :-)

It's an unfortunate fact that this issue is not just limited to the retail sale of's far more widespread than that.....and far more widespread than just the US. I'm not convinced the problem can be pin pointed back to one single presidential administration either. Corporates have far more control over this than any government could ever hope to.
