I did a whole series of posts (very turgid stuff) on Veblen's book, Theory of the Leisure Class. I really enjoyed doing that, though it was hard work, because his book was fascinating, in spite of his writing style. But I didn't run into the phrase 'Veblen goods' - thanks for that!
Shelley, turgid stuff sounds right up my alley. :)I'll have a look for your posts. I find marketing/economics/decision making fascinating. It's amazing to me how easily we fall to marketing, like we don't stand a chance.
