Galbraith, as may be expected, presents his powerful and even revolutionary analysis in a style that is disarmingly elegant and witty. Somehow it seems improper (though fortunate) that a work of such commanding importance and intellectual depth should be so thoroughly accessible to the average reader as well as to the professional economist."

Economics and the Public Purpose
 
Publisher: Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1973.
First Edition. 23½ X 16 cm. Near Fine/VG+. Dark grey cloth with gilt and red foil titles and decorations on front board and spine, top edge dyed grey, xvii, 334 pp, index. Very lightly rubbed at corners and spine ends, one leaf dog-eared. DJ rubbed and creased a bit at corners and spine ends, with two edge tears (the larger 4 mm long); in Brodart archival cover. From the DJ: "Readers will finish this book not only with a new view of how the modern economy works, but also with a new sense of what it takes to avoid its more disastrous effects. Galbraith, as may be expected, presents his powerful and even revolutionary analysis in a style that is disarmingly elegant and witty. Somehow it seems improper (though fortunate) that a work of such commanding importance and intellectual depth should be so thoroughly accessible to the average reader as well as to the professional economist."

The explanation here advanced is based upon the so-called Acceleration Principle; but allowance is made for the consequences of this principle being at work in an advancing economy, of its being subject to complex lags, and of an asymmetry between its behaviour in booms and in slumps."

Ise notes in his introduction that "Capitalism is considered here in its historical development and in its relation to other economic systems. Much more than the usual attention has been given to the other isms, because some of the world is now living under other economic systems, because the same weaknesses in the capitalist order which brought its abandonment in some other countries are apparent also in the United States and, finally, because a consideration of other economic systems throws much light on the operation of capitalism. I hope that the discussion of the Soviet system, for instance, will help students to see more clearly the function of prices in our economy." Shipping weight 4 lbs. (International 3 lbs., 12 oz.)

And the business interests of these absentee owners no longer coincide in any passable degree with the material interests of the underlying population, whose livelihood is bound up with the due work of this industrial system.."
