I am trying to finish so that I can write a Precis... on page 117. That said, I really appreciate Galbraith's periodic rhetorical interventions where he interrogates the titles of various different books. As in his consideration of Smith's "Wealth of Nations" he shows suggests that the implication of the title is one of "opulence and well-being". It fits nicely into what seems to be his overall project of laying out the way that the terms and ideas we use in current economic discourse (like "production") were formed.
