Professor James Galbraith is a distinguished professor and Chair of Government and Business Relations at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas in Austin.  He is the son of renowned economist John Kenneth Galbraith. James is the Chair of the international organization Economists for Peace and Security and a Senior Scholar of the Levy Economics Institute.  In the early 80s, he served on the Congressional staff as the Executive Director of the Joint Economic Committee. 

Prof. Galbraith has written many critical and controversial books challenging the nation’s predominant economic policy legislation and the paradigm from which it is based.  His latest book is, “The Predatory State: How Conservatives Abandoned the Free Market and Why Liberals Should Too” which targets the liberal economic policies being espoused by both parties for being bankrupt in theory and principle.
