    I'd love to see some of his work discussed in bite sized pieces.

    At one time I was very keen on the study of Veblen. Which reminds me...

    One of the great disappointments of my youth was meeting Josef Pieper when I was an student in the 70's.  I had hoped to get some insight from the great man, author of: Leisure, the Basis of Culture Apparently the cheesetray was more interesting than engaging the inquiring mind of this undergraduate.

    I would have liked to have met Sebastian de Grazia author of Of Time, Work and Leisure

    Keynes could be paraphrased; that those practical people were slaves of some dead philosophers too.
