Sadly forgotten classic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Theory of the Leisure Class (Kindle Edition)
I bought this on Kindle because it's free. I have my own dog-eared copy. This is a heavy read but a brilliant analysis of capitalism and human nature. We use lots of phrases Veblen invented, without knowing where they come from: conspicuous consumption, vicarious leisure, etc. It was written 120 years ago and the ideas are still fresh. Can't believe I really am the first to review it...
