John Galbraith

Canadian-American economist.
I've been a faithful reader of the great classical documents of economics, or tried to be. The first book in the field that I ever read was Principles of Economics by Alfred Marshall. I suppose subsequently I would have to pick out Keynes, Adam Smith, Marx.More John Galbraith quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Of all classes the rich are the most noticed and the least studied.More John Galbraith quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Those who had been riding the upward wave decide now is the time to get out. Those who thought the increase would be forever find their illusion destroyed abruptly, and they, also, respond to the newly revealed reality by selling or trying to sell. And thus the rule, supported by the experience of centuries: the speculative episode always ends not with a whimper but with a bang.More John Galbraith quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
War remains the decisive human failure.More John Galbraith quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
