Obviously, I’m playing on economist Thorstein Veblen’s concept of “Conspicuous Consumption,” in his 1899 publication “The Theory of the Leisure Class.”
Veblen, a Norwegian-American, promulgates the idea that people purchase certain goods and services not to survive, but rather to identify themselves as having superior wealth and social standing. Well, our Las Vegas Conspicuous Construction is resultant of a different motive, I suspect.
