Four quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith

John Kenneth 'Ken' Galbraith, OC (Station, Ontario, October 15, 1908 - April 29, 2006, Cambridge, Massachusetts) was a Canadian-American economist, diplomat, public official, and intellectual. His books on economic topics were bestsellers from the 1950s through the 2000s. As an economist, he leaned toward post-Keynesian economics from an institutionalist perspective.
 Economics is extremely useful as a form of employment for economists. 
 Faced with the choice between changing one's mind and proving that there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof. 
 Nothing is so admirable in politics as a short memory. 
 The happiest time of anyone's life is just after the first divorce.
