Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

A very good diary.  My dad was an economics major at Carleton, which is almost certainly where he picked up his interest in Veblen.   I went there myself, but studied something entirely different :-).

As I become more and more interested in issues like Peak Oil, sustainability and the environment, I start to see the problems caused by the insatiable need for growth that capitalism seems to require.  

I think I am going to dig out some of Veblen's books that my dad gave me, and actually read them to see what he has to say.
