Discription The Theory of the Leisure Class by Thorstein Veblen:

 OverviewThe most impressive satirist of his day. Time MagazineWith devastating satiric wit, this book examines the hollowness and falsity suggested by the term conspicuous consumption (coined by Veblen) and exposes the emptiness of many cherished standards of taste, education, dress, and culture. Since its original publication in 1899, the work has become a classic of social and economic thought and policy and exerted an influence widely felt beyond the sphere of economics.For Veblen, the shallowness and superficiality of society resulted from the tendency to believe that true accomplishment lay in arriving at a condition of ostentatious wealth and status.

In developing this thesis, he traces the origins and development of ownership and property, offering extraordinary insights into the phenomenon of consumerism, the evolution of class structure, the rise of leisure time and how modern societal goals are grounded in pecuniary aspirations and achievements.Students, sociologists, historians, economists anyone interested in the motives and behavior of human beings within a large-scale social context will find this time-honored investigation still relevant and readable over a century after its first appearance.

At the back of his chair she stopped, and stood listening, with her great eyes wide open, and her cheeks red with the excitement of this unusual performance. Taking no more notice of her than if she had been a fly, Mr. Laurence talked on about Laurie's lessons and teachers; and presently, as if the idea had just occurred to him, he said to Mrs. March- "The boy neglects his music now, and I'm glad of Lesure, for he was getting too The Theory of the Leisure Class of it.

But the piano suffers The Theory of the Leisure Class want of use. Wouldn't some of your girls like to run over, and practise on it now and then, just to keep it in tune, you know, ma'am?" Beth took a step forward, and pressed her hands tightly together to keep from clapping them, for this was an irresistible temptation; oc the thought of practising on that splendid instrument quite took her breath away.

Before Mrs. March could reply, Mr.
