Galbraith repeatedly makes the point that those in the know had already guessed early in the year that the bubble was set to burst. Those in government and acting as financial regulators had two much less than optimum choices to make — they could put a pin in the bubble and burst it immediately, or they could wait around for it to burst of its own accord.

The point is that bursting the bubble might well have been the best thing to do, saving the market from further overheating. The problem with doing this, even if your intention was to stop further hardship, is that it will be clear to everyone that you were the person that caused the bubble to burst. So, the temptation is to allow the bubble to burst of its own accord, even if this makes matters a thousand times worse. That way it can seem like an act of God, rather than of the regulating bodies and therefore they might just get re-elected.

It is a sobering idea. Or my favourite, that the market needed a bit of a rest after working so hard in the twenties that it needed to have the thirties off altogether. It is clear that for capitalism to continue to grow it needs ever expanding markets. But the US at the time was actually doing everything in its power to contract its markets. It had become a creditor nation to Europe after the first world war, it increased tariffs and thereby denied other countries a means of repaying debt owed to the US in a way that might encourage them to download more US goods and most interesting, despite a 40 odd per cent increase in productivity of labour, wages barely increased at all.

As Marx pointed out nearly a century before Galbraith, under capitalism, and for the first time in human history, we have crisis due to producing too much, rather than too little. The wholesale destruction of capital due to the depression that followed the crash was necessary not because there was no one who wanted what could have been produced by this capital, but because there was no profit to be made from producing it. And greed was the key determining feature that decided there would be no market — stopping pay increases for workers through a decade of growth and thereby directing the wealth of society disproportionately towards the rich only meant they would use it to further speculate on the stock market — which only made the situation worse for everyone.

It is what causes men who know that things are going quite wrong to say that things are fundamentally sound. This is an important book to read now and always. Empire of Deception.
