John Kenneth Galbraith’s “The Affluent Society”: Take Three

And we’re off to the races! Over on Tandem Reading, Will Wachter has posted his comments on the opening chapters of The Affluent Society. John and I are especially happy to have Will in on the discussion. An economics major at Princeton, during the last three years Will has studied Mandarin Chinese in Taiwan, worked in New York, and will be serving the USA as a Foreign Service Officer in Beijing come the New Year. Check out what he has to say here.
