Bolded words are mine:
April 30, 2006 –
John Kenneth Galbraith, 97, Dies; Economist Held a Mirror to Society
November 16, 2006 –
Milton Friedman, Free Markets Theorist, Dies at 94
Economist Friedman accomplished more in reality than Galbraith ever did in theory or in reality.

UPDATE, Nov. 20 — The Business & Media Institute (HT Ken Shepherd at NewsBusters) notes very different coverage of Galbraith and Friedman in the Washington Post at the time of their deaths. Guess who got more ink and favorable notice without any snark?
