The Affluent Society is a book that questions the very premise of our economic system - production for production's sake. I think that Galbraith makes an excellent point that you don't need to tell a hungry man that he's hungry (implying that almost all "market demand" today is synthetically created by corporations that need to sell their vast surplus of goods to manipulated consumers).
