Thorstein Veblen's ideas regarding capitalism, particularly as expressed through his view of the American upper classes of the time, are examined. The work of Veblen himself, as well as other, later economic theorists, is discussed. Particular attention is paid to how Veblen's ideas can be applied to today's social economy, especially where globalization and inequality are concerned.
