"Change of Direction": James Galbraith
by James Galbraith
Thursday Dec 20th, 2012 11:03 AM
The economy should be a part of life, not a steamroller crushing self-determination and creativity. The time is right for alternative economics, access instead of excess, enough instead of more and qualitative growth instead of quantitative growth. Unlike a chair, an idea can be shared by a whole people.

Education is "the great transformer." (John Kenneth Galbraith)
James Galbraith, the son of John Kenneth Galbraith, is a professor of economics at the University of Texas.
