A Study of the Economic Writings of John Kenneth Galbraith
VanLuvanee, John Arthur
MetadataShow full item record
As one familiar with his career will know, Galbraith has, at one time or another during his career, addressed himself to a broad spectrum of topics within the field of economics. Topics with which Galbraith has been most involved naturally comprise the majority of his writings. It is for this reason that some portions of this thesis may seem to receive emphasis disproportionate to their importance in the body of economic theories. Similarly, critics have, been more concerned with some of Galbraith's ideas than others. Hence, criticism may be entirely lacking for some important idea while plentiful for some ideas of lesser importance. As a general rule, I have attempted to summarize Galbraith's views on a particular subject before turning to criticism. The reader should assume, unless otherwise stated, that economic theory presented in these sections is primarily that used by Galbraith in establishing his points. Only where clarification seemed necessary have I expanded on this theory. Thus, any errors in theoretical matters may be attributed to the author's misunderstanding of Galbraith or to incomplete knowledge of the economic theory under discussion.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
