John Kenneth Galbraith is one of the country's most widely quoted economists. At present he is one of President Kennedy's top economic advisers. The advice he gives will be very influential in shaping the program of the Kennedy administration in the next four years.

Mr. Galbraith is especially important to the lay public as a man who can present in nontechnical and illustrative language a clear picture of the American economy today. He uses his charm, with, and gentle sarcasm to not only put his point across but to make the subject of economics pleasantly readable. His popularity as a writer is attested to by the fact that two of his books have been best sellers.
