First edition, first printing. Veblen's book continues his critique of modern capitalism, started two decades earlier in his Theory of the Leisure Class. Derived from articles published in The Dial over 1918-19, Veblen argues that big business has subverted government to its own interests, with the common man presented with an illusion of democracy and free enterprise which is no longer present.
