Beschreibung

The richly adventurous memoirs of one of the most dazzling public figures to dominate the American scene over the last decades “As a raconteur and a literary stylist he stands with the best. . . . As entertainment, the book is a total success.” -- The New York Times Book Review “Absorbing and irresistible.” -- The New Yorker “A highly perceptive commentary on all our yesterdays . . . anecdotal, amusing, animated and above all, illuminating.” -- John Barkham Reviews “An enjoyable book, full of fun, full of wisdom, and full of rare insights into the history of our times.” -- The New Republic “A delightfully teeming book . . . [John Kenneth] Galbraith’s comic voice is a distinctive and durable literary achievement.” -- Atlantic Monthly

Autorentext
John Kenneth Galbraith was born in 1908 in Ontario, Canada. He earned a PhD at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1934 and later took a fellowship at Cambridge, where he first encountered Keynesian economics. At different points in his life he taught at both Harvard and Princeton, and wrote more than 40 books on an array of economic topics, including A Short History of Financial Euphoria. During World War II he served as the deputy head of the Office of Price Administration, charged with preventing inflation from crippling the war efforts, and also served as the US ambassador to India during the Kennedy administration. He died in 2006.
