The Theory of the Leisure Class by Thorstein Veblen (5/8)

Unlike most works that describe economics as a series of formulas and resource allocations, Veblen describes economics as the natural outcome of class warfare and an inherent desire for social recognition. This book provides a new perspective on why people buy what they buy, why many luxury items really exist, and the reasoning behind the famous economic term that bears the author’s name: Veblen good.
