The Abiding Economics of John Kenneth Galbraith - by Marc Lee and James Galbraith
From The Great Crash, we have of course the conviction that financial panics affect real activity. No one in the 19th century or with experience of agriculture ever seriously doubted that the economy runs on credit or that real activity depends on banks.
