Conspicuous Consumption

by Thorstein Veblen - £4.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141023984 | ISBN 10: 0141023988

With its wry portrayal of a shallow, materialistic 'leisure class' obsessed by clothes, cars, consumer goods and climbing the social ladder, this withering satire on modern capitalism is as pertinent today as when it was written over a century ago.
