This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the challenges faced by former U.S. President Gerald Ford during the 1970s. The 1970s was no ordinary era and Ford led a country that trembled on the cusp of ominous changes and where cynicism and distrust permeated politics. Despite various criticisms against him, Ford ameliorated the decade's problems. He restored economic stability, revived his Republican Party, and reduced inflation and unemployment rates.

Keywords:   Gerald Ford, 1970s, economic stability, inflation, Republican Party, unemployment
