Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If your dad picked up an interest in Veblen at Carleton, it was an accident.  Or perhaps he went to school there a long time ago.  The school once named its big mainframe computer Veblen and there is a group of faculty members who have a string quartet they call Veblen, but there are NO Institutionalists in the economics faculty these days.

If you are going to read Veblen, be sure to include "The Instinct of Workmanship"  It was his favorite--and it is most certainly mine.
