Last year the Progressive Economics Forum of Canada initiated a John Kenneth Galbraith Prize, and Jamie Galbraith gave a magnificent lecture to inaugurate this prize in memory of his father. Mel Watkins and I were the first recipients of the prize awarded in Vancouver in June 2008. Here is a copy of my lecture:
