Author Bio
John Kenneth Galbraith
Economist, diplomat, teacher, and public intellectual, John Kenneth Galbraith had a long and distinguished career as an advisor to presidents from Roosevelt to Kennedy, and as a keeper of the liberal soul. Born in Canada to politically engaged parents, he eventually graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a Ph.D. in economics. Eschewing statistical approaches, he looked to politics and culture to explain the economy of nations. THE GREAT CRASH: 1929 relied on a narrative approach; his THE AFFLUENT SOCIETY was more analytical. John F. Kennedy appointed him as ambassador to India, but later Galbraith was to criticize the war in Vietnam. He wrote several memoirs, including one about his boyhood. Galbraith even wrote novels--one, A TENURED PROFESSOR, about a Harvard economist.
