President John F. Kennedy (1961-1963)

President John F. Kennedy did not have much opportunity to implement his version of the American System, before he was felled by an assassin’s bullet. However, his moves in that direction, from the space program, to the investment tax credit, to mooting changes in the Federal Reserve and conceiving stunning infrastructure programs both at home and abroad, deserve to be mentioned. JFK stood on the shoulders of FDR in his determination to improve the general welfare of a nation that had begun to be steered over the abyss, into the post-industrial, no-growth economy.
