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

Heh.  My copy of Elegant Technology is in the mail.  Veblen vaulted several places up the To Read list.

Can one get a signed copy?

Veblen's been on my reading list this summer.

I have a library copy of The Theory of Business Enterprise setting on my coffee table right now.

I've been reading a lot this summer, and I want to try to get as much Veblen in as I can.  I finished Michael Marmot's The Status Syndrome earlier this week and I liked it alot.

Control's the root of the matter, and it's the feeling of not being in control that is the heart of inequality and the origin of the social gradient in health.  (Why low status people are more sick than high status people.)

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
