Review of Theory of the Leisure Class by Thorstein Veblen

Book can be found in:
Genre = Economics

Elaborate Description

A description of the upper class, so call leisure class, in different times is the main theme of the book. It describes the rise and the perpetuation of a class which does not have an obligation to obtain skills worthy to help a market place. They create mostly waste, but what they do create has some value. The book is generally difficult to read. Much of the explanation for specific reasoning that Veblen describes, is stated later rather than initially.
