JMJ IHM Veblen's book on business enterprise focuses on several different aspects of business, not only how it drives the economy, but how it affects the individual as well. He puts an emphasis on the prominent business man, the effects of the enterprise on him, and what he can do to change and profit from that enterprise. He also places a special importance on the 'machine process.' He calls machinery the focus of the business world, as it was in the 1900's. Extending his insightful veiws into the social as well as the economic world, Velben's book is well-written and comprehensive. He expertly links each of the aspects of his Theory together in well-headed, essay-like chapters. It provides a good over view of the business enterprise of the 1900's.Was this review helpful?
