Galbraith and the Post Keynesians

  • Paul Davidson


Shortly after he published his wonderfully interesting memoir A Life in our Times, Ken Galbraith sent me a copy of this book. In this copy he wrote: ‘For the Davidsons from the pre Keynesian world (and after too).’ In this book, Galbraith discusses an interesting exchange of ideas on the cause of unemployment that took place between himself and Henry Dennison in 1936. According to Galbraith, Dennison was, at the time, ‘the most interesting businessman in the United States’ (Galbraith, 1981, p. 61).
