Wednesday Wisdom

"The sense of responsibility in the financial community for the community as a whole is not small. It is nearly nil." 
— John Kenneth Galbraith (The Great Crash 1929)

Because I work in HR, very few people are aware that I actually have a degree in economics. While English majors had crushes on Hemingway and Faulkner, my crush was John Kenneth Galbraith. I can honestly say that I loved reading his book The Good Society, a copy of which is in my office. The quote above is from his research of the 1929 crash, but how appropriate it is today.
