Do take Galbraith with a grain of salt. As this article in Atlantic says,

I take everything with a grain of salt (except freedom fries, which I take with mayonnaise, a la Belge).

You will note I put Galbraith in the introductory stuff, because he is witty and very good at exposing mainstream fallacies.

For example of how much salt I put in things, I'm pretty sure you haven't read any book on that list, including Galbraith. I am also positive you can find somewhere on the web some hack smearing any author and republish it an an example of your penetrating intellect. Can you take with a grain of salt something you do not take at all? Or do you just recommend eating just salt?

Here's a challenge. Read something a tiny bit more demanding than the Atlantic Monthly. And come back sharing your salt.
