More About The Affluent Society by John Kenneth Galbraith
 
 
 
Overview

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
