The culture of contentment by John Kenneth Galbraith ( Book )
27 editions published between 1991 and 2000 in 8 languages and held by 2,564 libraries worldwide
The Culture of Contentment is a keen and striking appraisal of America's current, far from happy state of affairs, written by possibly our wisest and certainly our most lucid and irreverent economist, John Kenneth Galbraith. This major new work goes far beyond Ronald Reagan and George Bush to ultimate and controlling causes--to the rise of a greatly self-satisfied elite that is now dominant in the electoral process. The result: today, a once strong and aspiring nation has lapsed into a self-serving economic and social stasis. Surveying this development with a detached and penetrating eye, Galbraith lives up to his reputation as "the voice and conscience of the economic profession." Galbraith here scrutinizes the perilous by-products of complacency: a commitment to short-term action and inaction, restricted investment as a basic policy, government seen only as a burden, corporate sclerosis, and the dark side of financial speculation. He also considers the fate of the "functional underclass," people who are stalled in poverty and denied the crucial support needed to change their situation. The larcenous savings-and-loan and junk-bond scandals are examined as major examples of the controlling principles of contentment. And from the clear-eyed global perspective for which he is celebrated, Galbraith regards key issues on the world scene: the emergence of the powerful new economies of Japan and Germany, the larger, often recreational nature of foreign policy, and self-controlling, self-enhancing military power. Making no concession to false optimism, Galbraith leaves no one in doubt as to what could be done, little as we may be disposed to do it. Here, in short, is an acute and powerful assessment of where we are heading and not heading and what the consequences will be, from one of the sharpest and most original minds of our time.

A journey through economic time : a firsthand view by John Kenneth Galbraith ( Book )
7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 2,293 libraries worldwide
In this ambitious, eminently readable survey, John Kenneth Galbraith exhibits unmatched insight and broad scope - from World War I and the Russian Revolution to the implications of Communism's fall, from the "superbly insane decade of the twenties" and the Great Depression to the Reagan era and beyond. Whether he is analyzing the advent of Keynesian theory or the end of colonialism and the emergent Third World, Galbraith epitomizes the hindsight and the vision of one who has been an active and outspoken participant in the world's economic history. He writes with authority about the forging of Kennedy's New Frontier and Johnson's Great Society and examines the consequences of the "unintended history of the 1980s." Keenly observed and brilliantly composed, A Journey Through Economic Time is the crowning achievement of a remarkable career, a comprehensive and accessible view of twentieth-century economic and political history that will be read and referred to for years to come.
The good society : the humane agenda by John Kenneth Galbraith ( Book )
31 editions published between 1942 and 1999 in 10 languages and held by 2,124 libraries worldwide
In this tightly argued and eloquent book, the preeminent economist John Kenneth Galbraith presents the blueprint for a society that is compassionate to the less fortunate and economically feasible for all. He points the way toward the achievable goals for a "good society": personal liberty, basic well-being, racial and ethnic equality, and the opportunity for a rewarding life. However, this is no utopian approach to the economic challenges facing America; Galbraith recognizes human weakness, differences in ability and motivation, and the formidable obstacles facing those who challenge the status quo. Still, Galbraith's optimism shines through as he explains how we could establish a more humane world by shedding today's conventional wisdom about inflation, the deficit, taxes, and immigration, and by recognizing the immense value of education and environmental responsibility and the political action that the good society demands.
