From the cover: “The decade of the sixties was a busy time for John Kenneth Galbraith – in economics, in politics, as an ambassador, as a literary critic, writing fiction, and serving, as he once said, as a general scold. This book is the harvest of these years. In economics it goes back to the Keynesian revolution with his much reprinted essay on ‘How Keynes Came to America’. It carries the author’s ideas forward to The New Industrial State and to important writing beyond. Here, on inflation, the environment, the quality of life, the causes of the curious unevenness of our economic blessings, the reasons for the revolt of the young and the transitory character of financial genius in a falling market, are some of the most influential economic ideas of our time, and, in their application to current problems, some the most practical.”
