Summary
The primary aspect of the "fraud" of the American economy that Galbraith (emeritus, economics, Harvard U.) criticizes is the false pretense of shareholder control over corporations, when in fact all real power has shifted to corporate managers. Contradicting conventional wisdom, or "approved belief" in his words, he denies the distinction between the private and public sectors, describing how the managerial class has unprecedented power in the economy's public sector, including major influence over important policies of war or peace. In the end, the continuing references to an impersonal market are "a not wholly innocent fraud." Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
