Remembering John Kenneth Galbraith
Via the History News Network "Power & Liberty" group blog, Sheldon Richman acknowledges the death of John Kenneth Galbraith last weekend this way:
John Kenneth Galbraith died at age 97 over the weekend. The nicest thing I can say about him is that he spent his long career trying to subjugate the individual to an all-powerful state administered by him and people like him. His answer to concentrated corporate power was concentrated political power, which is the source of corporate power in the first place.
I think, just to be on the safe side, we should pound a wooden stake through Galbraith’s autocratic heart.
