Program
Thus Galbraith: the Life and Times of John Kenneth Galbraith
Program Description

The most influential political economist of the last 50 years, John Kenneth Galbraith has been a friend and advisor to presidents and statesmen. Former US Ambassador to India. National institution. Cambridge fixture. Spend a provocative and informative hour with the man affectionately known as Ken, as host and longtime friend William F. Buckley, Jr., accompanies him down the many detours off of memory lane - his Canadian boyhood, the Kennedy years, his skirmishes with the State Department and the Pentagon, retirement. As Buckley puts it, "As a critic, he can be mean. But his sense of humor is always intact. Except when he talks about Herbert Hoover."
