Much like Veblen, the intellectual figure with whom his thought is most often likened, a voluminous literature has evolved in the history of economic thought attempting to unravel the unique contributions of John Kenneth Galbraith. Longtime Harvard professor, presidential advisor, speechwriter and Ambassador to India, bestselling author and a former editor of Fortune, Galbraith is without doubt one of the most widely read and easily recognisable (excusing the pun) of twentieth century economists. Not nearly as much the subject of confusion and debate as is Veblen, though no less controversial, Galbraith and his work are a lively topic of debate amongst economists.
