Review:

"No American writer has done more to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable than John Kenneth Galbraith."--USA Today

"With characteristic wit and clarity [Galbraith] suggests that while good money may indeed be driven out by the bad, it is political suicide to assume that the suckers left holding the bad will take it lying down. . . . [T]here is no more current, more judicious, or more entertaining a perspective."--Kirkus

"Lively."--Library Journal

"Moneyis a book of perennial importance. Galbraith demonstrates a prescient insight and keen alertness to financial volatility and rising inequality."--Richard Parker, Harvard Kennedy School
