Forum 1: Conspicuous Consumption Topic: Thorstein Veblen put forth the notion of clothing being a strong indication of “conspicuous consumption” in his book, The Theory of the Leisure Class: An Economic Study in the Evolution of Institutions. Although beginning during the late Middle Ages, fashions of the 17th and 18th centuries were particularly characteristic of this notion. 1. Read the essay entitled Thorstein Veblen by Michael Carter on https://fashion-history.lovetoknow.com/fashion-history-eras/thorstein-veblen. 2. View the portraits of men and women in Chapters 9 and 10, describing how fashions from this period demonstrate this theory, using appropriate vocabulary. 3. What are some examples of conspicuous consumption in today’s fashion world, and 4. What does Biblical teaching tell us about conspicuous consumption? (350 – 400 words). Be sure to address all four aspects of the Discussion Board prompt.
