Hard covered book titled THE AGE OF UNCERTAINTY, A History of Economic Ideas and Their Consequences by John Kenneth Galbraith, 1977. 365 pages. The ideas of economists and social philosophers shape actions and events even when we are unaware of their sources. They have had a decisive influence on the great rush of change and revolution through which the world has passed in the last two hundred years. Professor Galbraith traces these ideas and their consequences from Adam Smith and Herbert Spences, through Marx and Lenin, to Keynes and on to concepts and events that gave shape to the Cold War, the modern corporation, the struggles of the Third World and the problems of modern urban society. This book is in VG condition. Pages are clean and intact, and the binding is tight. The dust jacket is worn and chipped at the edges. It would make a splendid addition to your library!
