Quotations by John Kenneth Galbraith
Milton FriedmanSeeking only the comfortable and accepted - These are the days when men of all social disciplines and all political faiths seek the comfortable and the accepted; when the man of controversy is looked upon as a disturbing influence, when originality is taken to be a mark of instability; and when, in minor modification of the scriptural parable, the bland lead the bland.

Chief executive salaries - The salary of the chief executive of the large corporation is not a market reward for achievement. It is frequently in the nature of a warm personal gesture by the Individual to himself.

A wrong decision versus a delayed decision - A wrong decision isn't forever; it can always be reversed. The losses from a delayed decision are forever; they can never be retrieved.

Politics not the art of the possible - Politics is not the art of the possible. It consists in choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable.
