Wishful Thinking

From Stu Eizenstat’s President Carter: the White House Years:

As part of an effort to restore confidence in the Oval Office, he established the ethics guidelines of 1997, which required senior presidential appointees to disclose and disgorge assets for any potential conflicts of interest. It also placed strict limits on gifts received while in office and set limits on the “revolving door” of lobbying by limiting former government employees’ lobbying of their previous departments. These critical limits remain highly relevant today.
