The Economics of Innocent Fraud
In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of good books for all'. A lifelong critic of unbridled corporate power and the most widely read economist of the twentieth century, the admired Harvard professor J. K. Galbraith has been published by Penguin for more than forty years. His latest book The Economics of Innocent Fraud is a vigorous polemic that reveals the private sector's control over public life in today's society, and considers our increasing tendency to blindly accept legal, legitimate, innocent' fraud.
