Born in iniquity and conceived in sin, the spirit of nationalism has never ceased to bend human institutions to the service of dissension and distress.

Thorstein Veblen Quotes

Did you know about Thorstein Veblen?

Veblen is famous in the history of economic thought for combining a Darwinian evolutionary perspective with his new institutionalist approach to economic analysis. In early barbarian society this is the difference between the hunter and the gatherer in the tribe but as society matures it is the difference between the landed gentry and the indentured servant. Veblen was sympathetic to state ownership of industry but he had a low opinion of workers and the labor movement and there is disagreement about the extent to which his views are compatible with Marxismsocialism or anarchism.
