Review:

"One of the most gifted writers alive . . . tumbling the tribal Gods of both left and right." Boston Globe "With his customary clarity, eloquence, and humor, Galbraith cuts to the heart of what economic security means (and doesn't mean) in today's world and lays bare the hazards of complacency about economic inequity." The New York Times
