PL 3 perfect. Thank you, Leni! This is to my knowledge the first notion of the " keeping up with the Joneses " theory publicly announced. That of course came to be the prevalent sociological slogan of the 50's and 60's - 50 years after Veblen - before the energy crisis. The latest emergence of the e...

PL 18 perfect. Thank you, Tracy! Yes, not the most readable part of the book. The tongue twisting level actually varies quite a bit between chapters, as you most likely noticed already. Not perhaps the politically most correct views in this. This dates to the first hooray of social darwinism, which ...

PL 15 perfect. Thank you Morgan!

Besides, I think Veblen at some point in this states that he is merely describing his law of conspicuous consumption. So maybe he is not on the mission of destroying everything aesthetic... But Ruskin got a couple of extra remarks, that's for sure. :D
