Thorstein Veblen is a great American economist along with Irving Fisher and John Bates Clark in many economic thoughts for combining a Darwinian evolutionary perspective with his new institutionalist approach to economic analysis. He developed a 20th-century evolutionary economics based upon Darwinian principles and new ideas emerging from anthropology, sociology, and psychology. Veblen’s important works includes The Theory of the Leisure Class and The Theory of Business Enterprise.

In this book, Veblen discussed various financial transformations within capitalism and examined the value of free enterprise in general. He argued the automation and the loss of direct human relations within the industrial arts as well as social repercussions of capitalistic industry.

It is an amazing book and very relevant today. It was written in 1919 but it seems like the author could have written it last year to explain the current situation of expanding gap of this world due to information revolution and knowledge revolution.

This book is for the readers who are interested in the deepest thoughts of technological impact on economic and political systems and their evolution by Thorstein Veblen, one of the greatest economic thinkers on the planet.
