  3. I recently read Mills White Collar and couldn t get over how often he referred to this book All the same, I hesitated before reading it, not least since my concern that Mills book was a bit old was obviously multiplied by the age of this one But this is brilliant Now, you know when people tell you that you should read a book because it is a classic you are likely to think yeah, that just means you ve read it and so either want to just show off or you think that if I ve put myself t I recently read Mills White Collar and couldn t get over how often he referred to this book All the same, I hesitated before reading it, not least since my concern that Mills book was a bit old was obviously multiplied by the age of this one But this is brilliant Now, you know when people tell you that you should read a book because it is a classic you are likely to think yeah, that just means you ve read it and so either want to just show off or you think that if I ve put myself through it, you might as well too well, no, you should read this one, not just because it is good for you, but because it is seriously interesting.The most obvious point people will bring up about this book is the idea of conspicuous consumption and why not, it...

Woody Guthrie observed, Some will rob you with a six gun, and some with a fountain pen Bob Dylan quoted these lyrics and added, Didn t take too long to find out, just what he was talking about Thorstein Veblen, who found this situation to be bemusing if absurd, undertook to explain the social conventions and values that lead people to tolerate it He presented a picture of society in which routine, casual, legally sanctioned predation is the object of honor and adulation His explanation i Woody Guthrie observed, Some will rob you with a six gun, and some with a fountain pen Bob Dylan quoted these lyrics and added, Didn t take too long to find out, just what he was talking about Thorstein Veblen, who found this situation to be bemusing if absurd, undertook to explain the social conventions and values that lead people to tolerate it He presented a picture of society in which routine, casual, legally sanctioned predation is the object of honor and adulation His explanation is applicable to all sorts of social phenomena, wherever the status system makes distinctions For instance, it is no accident going on Veblen s logic that golf is the sporting activity par excellence of the jet set Golf requires the wasteful se...

  7. So most of the time, he s kind of riffing, but Veblen does his best writing not when he s theorizing about the nature of the leisure class after all, his ideas have become so sublimated into social perception at this point, which I guess speaks to their power but when he s going into specifics and demonstrating how they correlate to the broader theory And when his talking points get Victorian believing in intrinsic and universal aesthetic values, referring to the savage mind , it seems lik So most of the time, he s kind of riffing, but Veblen does his best writing not when he s theorizing about the nature of the leisure class after all, his ideas have become so sublimated into social perception at this point, which I guess speaks to their power but when he s going into specifics and demonstrating how they correlate to the broader theory And when his talking points get Victorian believing in intrinsic and universal aesthetic values, referring to the s...

Conspicuous LeisureThis is the book that coined the term conspicuous consumption My own stance in regard to this practice is demonstrated in the fact that I read this book in a Dover Thrift Edition so, I started reading the book with the expectation of it explaining other people s behavior However, before getting to conspicuous consumption, Veblen describes what he calls conspicuous leisure this is significant time spent in ways which are not aimed a earning money, either immediately o Conspicuous LeisureThis is the book that coined the term conspicuous consumption My own stance in regard to this practice is demonstrated in the fact that I read this book in a Dover Thrift Edition so, I started reading the book with the expectation of it explaining other people s behavior However, before getting to conspicuous consumption, Veblen describes what he calls conspicuous leisure this is significant time spent in ways which are not aimed a earning money, either immediately or at some future date But leisure in the narrower sense, as distinct from exploit and from any ostensibly productive employment of effort on objects which are of no intrinsic use, does not commonly leave a material product The criteria of a past performance of leisure therefore commonly take the form of immaterial goods Such immaterial evidences of past leisure are quasi...

  10. The first thing I ever read of any substance about Veblen was his brief biography in Dos Passos USA trilogy The Great American Novel It was highly complimentary and its subject was Norwegian and neglected just like me.I actually got around to reading The Theory of the Leisure Class some time after Dave Schweickart s courses in political economy got me interested in the subject and the reading of Kapital and re reading of On the Wealth of Nations got me less intimidated by the subject area.B The first thing I ever read of any substance about Veblen was his brief biography in Dos Passos USA trilogy The Great American Novel It was highly complimentary and its subject was Norwegian and neglected just like me.I actually got around to reading The Theory of the Leisure Class some time after Dave Schweickart s courses in political economy got me interested in the subject and the reading of Kapital and re reading of On the Wealth of Nations got me less intimidated by the subject area.Back in 87 Dad and his third wife, Lene, were living in a log cabin, a very fancy log cabin, in The Galena Territories outside of the town of that name in NW Illinois Planning an extended summer visit, I brought Thorstein along, probably thinking the two of them would be impressed I particulary recall reading it besides the, ah, territorial pool, thinking that being stuck there for the day would ensure that the boring tome would b...
