I note with a certain amount of sadness the passing of economist John Kenneth Galbraith at the age of 97. I am the way I am today because, as a junior in college, I had to read his The New Industrial State, which was only about ten years old at the time, but which already sounded dated and pessimistic, particularly when compared with Milton Friedman's Capitalism And Freedom, which had been written much earlier.

Rest in peace, professor.
