Over at my other blog I recently reviewed economist John Kenneth Galbraith's seminal trilogy, The Affluent Society, The New Industrial State and Economics and the Public Purpose. The books are interesting not only in themselves for what they have to say about the problems facing the American economy then and now, but as a reminder of how much bolder, broader and more ambitious social and political thought was a half century ago in contrast with that of our own era - something to remember as we debate the propensity of today's writers to engage the world around them, and their effectiveness at doing so.
