Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“With time there has been some explicit and a great deal of implicit acceptance of the Keynesian formula by American businessmen. However, as often happens, it encountered the sharp cleavage which exists in our attitude toward technological change and social change. If a man seeks to design a better mousetrap he is the soul of enterprise; if he seeks to design a better society he is a crackpot.”

–John Kenneth Galbraith, from “American Capitalism” (1952).
