The New Industrial State. by  John Kenneth Galbraith - Signed First Edition - 1967 - from Raptis Rare Books and Biblio.co.uk

The New Industrial State.

by Galbraith, John Kenneth

Condition: See description


Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1967. First edition of Galbraith landmark work. Octavo, original brown cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Larry Owens from John Kenneth Galbraith." Fine in a near fine dust jacket that shows only the lightest of shelfwear. Galbraith's ideas often addressed the influence of the potential market power of large corporations (Dunn and Pressman, 2005). He believed that corporations could become price makers, rather than price takers, by weakening the accepted principle of consumer sovereignty (Galbraith, 1970). This, in turn, allowed corporations to efficiently increase the production of their goods if they could achieve the strongest market power.

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
