☯ Full Synopsis : "The life and times of America's most celebrated economist, assessing his lessons-and warnings-for us today John Kenneth Galbraith's books -- among them The Affluent Society and American Capitalism -- are famous for good reason. Written by a scholar renowned for energetic political engagement and irrepressible wit, they are models of provocative good sense that warn prophetically of the dangers of deregulated markets, war in Asia, corporate greed, and stock-market bubbles. Galbraith's work has also deeply-and controversially-influenced his own profession, and in Richard Parker's hands his biography becomes a vital reinterpretation of American economics and public policy. Born and raised on a small Canadian farm, Galbraith began teaching at Harvard during the Depression. He was FDR's "price czar" during the war and then a senior editor of Fortune before returning to Harvard and to fame as a bestselling writer. Parker shows how, from his early championing of Keynes to his acerbic analysis of America's "private wealth and public squalor," Galbraith regularly challenged prevailing theories and policies. And his account of Galbraith's remarkable friendship with John F. Kennedy, whom he served as a close advisor while ambassador to India, is especially relevant for its analysis of the intense, dynamic debates that economists and politicians can have over how America should manage its wealth and power. This masterful chronicle gives color, depth, and meaning to the record of an extraordinary life."Article| Richard Parker| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "With searing wit and incisive commentary, John Kenneth Galbraith redefined America's perception of itself in The New Industrial State, one of his landmark works. The United States is no longer a free-enterprise society, Galbraith argues, but a structured state controlled by the largest companies. Advertising is the means by which these companies manage demand and create consumer "need" where none previously existed. Multinational corporations are the continuation of this power system on an international level. The goal of these companies is not the betterment of society, but immortality through an uninterrupted stream of earnings. First published in 1967, The New Industrial State continues to resonate today."Article| John Kenneth Galbraith| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The classic by the renowned economist: “One of those rare works that forces a nation to re-examine its values” (The New York Times). One of the New York Public Library’s “Books of the Century” Hailed as a “masterpiece” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), this examination of the “economics of abundance” cuts to the heart of what economic security means (and doesn’t mean) and lays bare the hazards of individual and societal complacence about economic inequity. The book that introduced the phrase “conventional wisdom” to our vernacular, The Affluent Society is as timely today as when it was first published. “Warrants careful reading by every thoughtful person.” —The Christian Science Monitor"Article| John Kenneth Galbraith| Statement ..."
