hot buttered popcorn It's Christmas, along with Friday Night Videos! Party Time!   Time to relax, put your feet up on the couch, lay back, and watch some detailed videos on economic policy!


This week is a marathon, in honor of Christmas day.

Economist or more social scientist, John Kenneth Galbraith, wrote and presented an economic series in 1977, The Age of Uncertainty. Galbraith was kind of a dinosaur by 1977, with Milton Friedman, Thatcherism and Reagan taking power of the political economy. Now that we are suffering through the consequences of unbridled corporate driven (written) policies, it might be nice to go back memory lane and revist Galbraith's view of of economic history.

The series has 15 parts and the 12 which overview economic history are in this post. Happy Holidays.
