Veblen - bust of economist Thorstein Veblen


Veblen is best known for .... well, if you opened this, I imagine you already know all about Thorstein. One of my favorites because he argued the businesses thrive, not for profit, but because workers take pride in their workmanship. Galbraith did detailed statistical verification of this in the go-go post-war years.... essentially in the 1960's. Theory of the Leisure Class is his best known work.
