John Kenneth Galbraith is one of the most prominent economists of the twentieth century. His best-selling works on the changing nature of the United States political economy have challenged the conventional wisdom and his unique perspective has had a significant impact on the way people all over the world think about economics. The contributing economists to this text discuss the continuing relevance of Galbraith's arguments to current controversies and problems. The issues that are explored range from globalization and the role of the state to redistributive economic policies. Also addressed are historical essays examining the legacy of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal and Adam Smith's views on British and American economic power. Each contributor develops a Galbraithian theme in line with contemporary concerns and the result is a collection that pays tribute to this great economist.
