Sounding the alarm on the gap between ?conventional wisdom? and reality, Galbraith distils years of expertise in this radical critique of our society. He shows the danger of the private sector?s unprecedented and unbridled control over public life ? from government to the military to the environment. And he reveals how politicians and the media have colluded in the myths of a benign ?market?: that big business always knows best, that minimal intervention stimulates the economy, that obscene pay gaps and unrestrained self-enrichment are an inevitable by-product of the system. The result, he shows, is that we have given ourselves over to a lie and come to accept legal, legitimate, innocent fraud. Galbraith?s analysis purports to show that the gulf between truth and illusion has never been wider. It is essential reading for anyone who cares about the economic and political future of the world.Read Less
