In this ambitious, eminently readable survey, John Kenneth Galbraith exhibits unmatched insight and broad scope - from World War I and the Russian Revolution to the implications of Communism's fall, from the "superbly insane decade of the twenties" and the Great Depression to the Reagan era and beyond. Whether he is analyzing the advent of Keynesian theory or the end of colonialism and the emergent Third World, Galbraith epitomizes the hindsight and the vision of one who has been an active and outspoken participant in the world's economic history. He writes with authority about the forging of Kennedy's New Frontier and Johnson's Great Society and examines the consequences of the "unintended history of the 1980s."
Keenly observed and brilliantly composed, A Journey Through Economic Time is the crowning achievement of a remarkable career, a comprehensive and accessible view of twentieth-century economic and political history that will be read and referred to for years to come.

more history than economics but worth the read, and history does seem to repeat in a fashion
