Rooted in the soil of Elgin County

The most influential American Economist of the 20th Century was Canadian. John Kenneth Galbraith, for example, piloted FDR's New Deal
The driving theory was that democracies thrive when the middle class is largest.
At times, Galbraith  experienced profound depression and alienation, for example, during periods of crisis and loss. He sometimes drank heavily and took pills.
