Quote of the day, April 2

John Kenneth Galbraith, from The Great Crash 1929

“There is … the slightly more subtle conviction that economic life is governed by an inevitable rhythm. After a certain time prosperity destroys itself and depression corrects itself. In 1929 prosperity, in accordance with the dictates of the business cycle, had run its course.”
