Blast from the Past: J.K. Galbraith
Paul Campos at Lawyers, Guns and Money posts about reading J.K. Galbraith's "The Affluent Society" (it's been 60 years since its publication). That was a very influential book for liberals back in the days of the New Frontier. But then came Michael Harrington and his "The Other America" which (re)discovered poverty. Between the two, they shaped much of my thinking back then.
