About the Author

John Kenneth Galbraith was Paul M. Warburg Professor of Economics, Emeritus, at Harvard University.


Piously but astutely, Galbraith hits the shared American and Soviet penchant for ignoring historical evolution in their rush to implant advanced capitalism or socialism in infant nations' economies. He lucidly shows how newly free nations with self-governing urges confound 'imperialist' politics. Finally, he assails the tragic stupidities inherent in U.S. and Soviet arms sales to poor countries, to conclude with prayers for the future. * Los Angeles Times Book Review *
A concise and enlightened view of the currently most widely held theories on economic development. * Washington Post Book World *
