    [EBOOK FREE] (American Capitalism The Concept of Countervailing Power) author John Kenneth Galbraith Much too brief a study of its seminal thesis containing neither a thorough theoretical analysis nor a historical study of countervailing power Even so the concept — that market institutions will develop occasionally with state support that check the excess power of other market institutions — remains compelling today The labor unions which Galbraith cites as a paradigmatic countervailing power have larg

read õ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ê John Kenneth Galbraith John Kenneth Galbraith Ê 8 characters summary American Capitalism The Concept of Countervailing Power ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ablished answer to economic power is the building of countervailing power The trade union remains an eualizing force in the labor markets and the chain store. Curious it seems why Galbraith was as popular and celebrated as he was In this book American Capitalism Galbraith argues how companies functions inefficiently by misallocating resources and spending wastefully on advertisements Moreover as companies continue to merge and accumulate larger proportions of the market share these companies will undoubtedly be able to affect price and form a monopoly In such monopolistic position companies will be able to charge almost as much as they want and will have large power over the workforce As such Galbraith finds there are countermeasures what he calls countervailing powers which will balance the scale of power These countervailing powers include labor unions government legislation and social safety nets Thus Galbraith concludes government has an important role in regulating the economy and to help the workersYet as complete as Galbraith s analysis of American capitalism seems nearly every point is incorrect American Capitalism contains arguments from essentially an armchair economist who remains ignorant of the real world He provides no real examples whereby companies are able to control the entire market within an industry and it is clear why there are almost no cases There is essentially no company that came to buy every other company and then proceeded to raise its prices If one such company initiated purchasing of other companies in the industry the remaining companies will take notice If these remaining companies are still operating with a competitive edge the cost of purchasing these companies will become larger and larger thus also encouraging new companies to enter the market Now even if one company came to completely dominate an entire industry there will be still alternative resources For example if one company came to own all the orange farms and all orange related production there remains apple lemon grapefruit milk water and so on as competitors Simply obtaining a large or entire market share of an industry does not necessarily mean monopolistic power Differing sizes of companies are due to differing efficient sizes of serving consumers for each industry On Galbraith s criticism of wasteful advertising simply because he may not find smoking or liuor terribly important does not mean other people may not enjoy these products The purpose of advertising is to inform consumers of new products If someone invented an innovative cheap and clean alternative to our current gas powered engines then advertising is used If someone invented meat derived from plants that is cheaper and healthier than our current food then advertising is used Moreover advertising does not persuade consumers of ineffective products over the long run If a product fails to deliver promises from advertising the company s reputation will be rightfully tarnished and fewer people will accept their claims or buy their products People are not simply brainwashed into buying whatever ad is on TV or radio people are not brainless zombiesFinally on Galbraith s thesis of countervailing power even if it were true workers are crushed under corporate power it does not follow that government is the solution Indeed if government attempts to manipulate and manage businesses who already has company power and influence over government agents It is of course the CEOs the lobbyists and the cronies of politicians Workers may form voluntary unions if they feel they are being treated unfairly but they are in no position to halt other individuals who are willing to work under such conditions Galbraith s over optimism on the role and action of the government remain unsatisfactory and unsupported American Capitalism while interesting and written clearly demonstrates how even an extremely influential economist may not know economics and is out of touch with reality The book is fraught with historical inaccuracies statistical misrepresentations over generalizations and unsupported statements Those who have studied America s Great Depression monopolies and antitrust government economic regulations inflation and other supposedly Keynesian remedies will conseuently find this book greatly mistaken To better spend your time read instead What Has Government Done to Our Money by Murray Rothbard In Defense of Deflation by Phillipp Bagus and The Causes of Economic Crisis by Ludwig von Mises
