Hello GAPE scholars,
I'm looking for an undergraduate-friendly reading on conspicuous consumption for a new course this fall. Veblen can be tedious for students, and I'd like to know if anyone might have a suitable alternative they use. Ideally I'd like something that explains the concept and gives some discussion-friendly examples, such as the manions at Newport, RI. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
