Jimmy Carter Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

James Earl Carter Jr., commonly known as Jimmy Carter, is a famous American novelist, politician, military officer, as well as a statesman. To the public, Jimmy Carter is perhaps best known as a former President of the United States, a position he held from 1977 until 1981. During his presidency, Jimmy Carter established the Department of Energy, as well as the Department of Education, and focused on the policy of energy distribution, consumption and production. However, by the end of his four year run in the office, Carter’s popularity had diminished, and he was unable to win a second term in the presidential election in 1980. Jimmy Carter was succeeded by Ronald Reagan, who became the President in 1981. Prior to being elected president, Jimmy Carter also served as a member of the Georgia Senate and in 1971 became the Governor of Georgia, a position he held until 1975.

When he left office, Jimmy Carter placed more focus on his writings, and published numerous books, such as “Keeping Faith: Memoirs of a President”, “Talking Peace: A Vision for the Next Generation”, and “Our Endangered Values: America’s Moral Crisis”, for which he won a Grammy Award. More recently, in 2014, Jimmy Carter published yet another book, entitled “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power”.

A famous former President of the United States, as well as an author, how rich is Jimmy Carter? According to sources, Carter’s net worth is estimated to be $5 million, one of the main sources of which has been his involvement in politics.

Jimmy Carter was born in 1924, in Plains, Georgia, where he studied at the Georgia Southwestern State University, and Georgia Institute of Technology. In 1943, following his dream, Jimmy Carter joined the US Naval Academy, where he rose to the rank of full lieutenant. Carter graduated from the academy in 1946, and in 1953 enrolled in the Union College, where he took up several classes. Prior to his involvement with politics, Carter became a farmer and supervised the family’s peanut farm, which he inherited from his father. Since Carter had no previous experience in farming, he decided to take up classes on agriculture. Over the years, Jimmy Carter managed to turn his father’s farm into a rather successful business.

Carter began to be seriously involved in politics in 1960s, when he announced that he would run for a seat in the Georgia state Senate. Even though Carter initially lost the election, it was later cancelled due to suspicions of fraudulence. When the new election was held, Jimmy Carter was victorious. Following his local success, Jimmy Carter ran for the position of the President of the United States in the 1976 election, which he won. Despite the fact that Jimmy Carter was largely criticized during his presidency, his successful humanitarian efforts placed him among the most successful presidents in the history of the United States. Carter’s contributions to politics have been acknowledged with the United Nations Human Rights Prize, as well as the Nobel Prize.

A former President of the United States, Jimmy Carter has an estimated net worth of $5 million.

#Quote
1 Politicians are experts at naps. Then you have to wake up and absorb your briefing quickly.
2 I can't deny that I am a better ex-president than I was a president.
3 (on his greatest concern about America in 2012) Every one of my successors has been in gratuitous wars. I think we could have resolved most of these conflicts in a peaceful way. And we share very little of our wealth with other people. These are a violation of the teachings of the Prince of Peace.
4 [on father] My father was the dominant person in our family and in my life.
5 [on the failed hostage rescue attempt] We had to have six [helicopters], to bring back the hostages. We planned on seven. At the last minute I ordered eight. And, incredibly, three of them were decommissioned. One turned back to the aircraft carrier. One went down in a sandstorm in the desert, and the other had a hydraulic leak and crashed. Complete surprise to all of us, particularly to the military experts. We lost three out of eight helicopters. So then we had to withdraw. But if I'd had one more helicopter we could have brought back our hostages, and I would have been looked upon as a much more successful president.
6 [on not going to war with Iran over the hostages]: ... it would probably have resulted in the death of maybe tens of thousands of Iranians who were innocent, and in the deaths of the hostages as well. In retrospect I don't have any doubt that I did the right thing. But it was not a popular thing among the public, and it was not even popular among my own advisers inside the White House. Including my wife.
7 My favourite president, and the one I admired most, was Harry Truman. When Truman left office he took the same position. He didn't serve on corporate boards. He didn't make speeches around the world for a lot of money.
8 We kept our country at peace. We never went to war. We never dropped a bomb. We never fired a bullet. But still we achieved our international goals. We brought peace to other people, including Egypt and Israel. We normalised relations with China, which had been non-existent for 30-something years. We brought peace between US and most of the countries in Latin America because of the Panama Canal Treaty. We formed a working relationship with the Soviet Union.
9 When I told my mother I was running for president, she said, "president of what?"
10 On Wednesday, August 17th, 1977, one day after Elvis Presley's life-loss, he personally said, "Elvis Presley's death deprived our country of apart of itself. He was unique and irreplaceable."
11 "I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history." (20 May 2007)
12 Unless both sides win, no agreement can be permanent.
13 John Wayne was bigger than life. In an age of few heroes, he was the genuine article. But he was more than a hero; he was a symbol of many of the qualities that made America great - the ruggedness, the tough independence, the sense of personal conviction and courage - on and off the screen - that reflected the best of our national character.
14 If one vote per precinct had changed in 1960, John Kennedy would never have been President of this nation. And if a few more people had gone to the polls and voted in 1968, Hubert Humphrey would have been President; Richard Nixon would not. - during his closing statement in the 1980 Presidential debate
