James K Galbraith, Economist

James K. Galbraith, though obscure himself until recently, has a famous dad.

James is my favorite economist because in addition to being one of those few who predicted the financial crisis he says more money needs to be put into social security, my primary source of funds.

From Common Dreams. org:

in which he says, for one thing:

"The idea that we will be on the road to full recovery and returning to high employment in a year or so therefore seems to me to be an illusion."
