Galbraith and Intellectual History

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


The present chapter attempts to place Galbraith in intellectual history. From the foregoing it is no doubt evident to the reader that the major contention here is that Galbraith is properly considered to represent the tradition of American institutionalism. This chapter maintains the argument. But there are some surrounding issues in this regard, which in some respects Galbraith shares with other institutionalists, the relation to Keynes, to modern liberalism, to more radical traditions, even to the nascent green intellectual tradition. These issues are also considered in the chapter.
