„Few can believe that suffering, especially by others, is in vain.“

—  John Kenneth Galbraith

Zdroj: The Age of Uncertainty (1977), Chapter 7, p. 211
Kontext: Few can believe that suffering, especially by others, is in vain. Anything that is disagreeable must surely have beneficial economic effects.

„People are the common denominator of progress.“

—  John Kenneth Galbraith

Economic Development (1964), ch. 2
Kontext: People are the common denominator of progress. So, paucis verbis, no improvement is possible with unimproved people, and advance is certain when people are liberated and educated. It would be wrong to dismiss the importance of roads, railroads, power plants, mills, and the other familiar furniture of economic development. At some stages of development — the stage that India and Pakistan have reached, for example — they are central to the strategy of development. But we are coming to realize, I think, that there is a certain sterility in economic monuments that stand alone in a sea of illiteracy. Conquest of illiteracy comes first.

„When you see reference to a new paradigm you should always, under all circumstances, take cover.“

—  John Kenneth Galbraith

As quoted in "Galbraith on crashes, Japan and Walking Sticks" by Ben Laurance and William Keegan, in The Observer (21 June 1998)
Kontext: When you see reference to a new paradigm you should always, under all circumstances, take cover. Because ever since the great tulipmania in 1637, speculation has always been covered by a new paradigm. There was never a paradigm so new and so wonderful as the one that covered John Law and the South Sea Bubble — until the day of disaster.

„If the state is the executive committee of the great corporation and the planning system, it is partly because neoclassical economics is its instrument for neutralizing the suspicion that this is so.“

—  John Kenneth Galbraith

Power and the Useful Economist (1973)
Kontext: This is what economics now does. It tells the young and susceptible (and also the old and vulnerable) that economic life has no content of power and politics because the firm is safely subordinate to the market and the state and for this reason it is safely at the command of the consumer and citizen. Such an economics is not neutral. It is the influential and invaluable ally of those whose exercise of power depends on an acquiescent public. If the state is the executive committee of the great corporation and the planning system, it is partly because neoclassical economics is its instrument for neutralizing the suspicion that this is so.

„I react to what is necessary. I would like to eschew any formula.“

—  John Kenneth Galbraith

Booknotes interview (1994)
Kontext: I react to what is necessary. I would like to eschew any formula. There are some things where the government is absolutely inevitable, which we cannot get along without comprehensive state action. But there are many things — producing consumer goods, producing a wide range of entertainment, producing a wide level of cultural activity — where the market system, which independent activity is also important, so I react pragmatically. Where the market works, I'm for that. Where the government is necessary, I'm for that. I'm deeply suspicious of somebody who says, "I'm in favor of privatization," or, "I'm deeply in favor of public ownership." I'm in favor of whatever works in the particular case.

„To add to the technostructure is to increase its power in the enterprise.“

„Two men jumped hand-in-hand from a high window in the Ritz. They had a joint account.“

—  John Kenneth Galbraith, kniha The Great Crash, 1929

Zdroj: The Great Crash, 1929 (1954 and 1997 https://openlibrary.org/books/OL25728842M/The_Great_Crash_1929), Chapter VII, Things Become More Serious, Section VIII, p. 131-132
Kontext: Clerks in downtown hotels were said to be asking guests whether they wished the room for sleeping or jumping. Two men jumped hand-in-hand from a high window in the Ritz. They had a joint account.

„The first goal of the technostructure is its own security.“

—  John Kenneth Galbraith, kniha The New Industrial State
