Affluence and Social Imbalance

  • James Ronald Stanfield
Part of the Contemporary Economists book series (CONTECON)


John Kenneth Galbraith’s The Affluent Society is one of the most famous books of the last twenty-five years. Its fame and, with the qualification that its basic message has gone unheeded, its influence, are indicated by its large sales; the adoption of its terminology; and the reviews, citations, and discussion given it (Sharpe, 1972; Hession, 1972; Gambs, 1975; Munro, 1977; Reisman, 1980).
