Texas Liberal To Begin Reading Galbraith’s The Affluent Society At Lunch Today

So you can imagine that Texas Liberal is pretty excited about lunch today.  Here is an obit of John Kenneth Galbraith. Galbraith thought that the state had a leading role to play in the economy. This is, or at least should be, a core position of the Democratic Party. 

The Affluent Society is Galbraith’s best known book. It was a bestseller when it came out in the late 1950’s.  

Here at Texas Liberal you get, at times at least, short posts that respect your time and your mind.  Please read Texas Liberal each and every day.

  1. Why not just be done with it and head straight to “The Good Society?” … or were you planning on reading both?

  2. No…I think I’ll stick with the one I have for the time being. I read a biography of Galbraith last year and The Affluent Society was the one I figured I wanted to read. You’re quite nice to ask though.
