    有闲阶级论 | The Theory of the Leisure Class by Thorstein Veblen

    Almost a century after its original publication, Thorstein Veblen's work is as fresh and relevant as ever. Veblen's The Theory of the Leisure Class is in the tradition of Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations and Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan, yet it provides a surprisingly contemporary look at American economics and society. Establishing such terms as "conspicuous consumption" and "pecuniary emulation," Veblen's most famous work has become an archetype not only of economic theory, but of historical and sociological thought as well. As sociologist Alan Wolfe writes in his Introduction, Veblen "skillfully . . .

    wrote a book that will be read so long as the rich are different from the rest of us; which, if the future is anything like the past, they always will be."

    《有闲阶级论》从金钱攀比动机出发,围绕着炫耀性休闲和炫耀性消费这两种阶级行为特征展开分析,从社会演进的角度探讨了有闲阶级的起源、有闲阶级的生活方式、消费标准、精神特征以及相关文化现象等方面的内容。

    学术上游走在经济学与社会学之间,方法上兼具阶级分析与制度分析之利,风格上一本正经地讽刺而不失学术底蕴。
