本书的主旨在于讨论作为现代生活中一个经济因素的有闲阶级的地位和价值。

《有闲阶级论》——关于制度的经济研究一问世,立即造成轰动,成为当时知识分子人手一册的风行之作。凡勃伦在书中力图用进化思想来研究现代经济生活。认为工业体制要求勤劳、合作、不断改进技术,而统治企业界人士却只追求利益和炫耀财富,这两者的矛盾限制了生产的发展和技术的进步。但随技术发展、技术人员的地位也日益重要,一旦这两者相联合,取得管理社会经济的权力,那么追求利润的"企业主制度"就会被摒弃。

In 1899 Thorstein Veblen published The Theory of the Leisure Class: A Economic Study of Institutions, which was to become the basis from which all further American leisure history and theory stemmed. In his study, Veblen is primarily concerned with the "new rich," whom he regards as social parasites that retard the growth of modern life. Thorstein Veblen wrote The Theory of the Leisure Class from a perspective that was largely isolated from his own culture, which either aided in his understanding of the Leisure Class or perhaps negatively influenced his opinions due to his exclusion from it.

托斯丹·邦德·凡勃伦,伟大的美国经济学巨匠、制度经济学鼻祖。凡勃仑是作为一个辛辣的社会批评家而为一般公众所知的,他这一风格的代表作是《有闲阶级论》一书。但从职业上说,他是个经济学家,是政治经济学杂志的第一主编。

Tosdan Bond Veblen was the great master of American economics and the originator of institutional economics.He is known to the general public as a bitter social critic. The masterpiece of his style is the theory of the idle class, but professionally, he is an economist and the first editor of the political economy magazine.

本研究旨在讨论有闲阶级的地位与价值,后者是现代生活中的一个经济因素,但我们无法把讨论严格地限定在上述范畴之内。我们必须讨论该制度的起源与派生线索,也要讨论那些通常不被划入经济学范畴的社会生活特质。

It is the purpose of this inquiry to discuss the place and value of the leisure class as an economic factor in modern life, but it has been found impracticable to confine the discussion strictly within the limits so marked out. Some attention is perforce given to the origin and the line of derivation of the institution, as well as to features of social life that are not commonly classed as economic.
