This book is an informal journal John Galbraith kept while lecturing abroad in the spring of 1958. It contains the author’s vivid impressions of people, places, and events as well as his conversations with government and labor officials, professors, teachers, students, and journalists. Galbraith has included in brief form the material of his lectures. Naturally, his point of view as an outstanding American economist was the subject of many questions and much discussion.
