Veblen's distinction between "institutions" and "technology" is still called the Veblenian dichotomy by contemporary economists.

In his The Engineers and the Price System, originally published in 1921, Veblen observes that World War One demanded industrial innovations, and he was among the first to predict the need for changes in managerial struc-ture. Veblen saw that industrial output was more dependent upon techno-crats managers and capital innova-tors than financiers. In The Engineers and the Price System, Veblen applies economic theory to modern industrial society. He demon-strates that revolutionary change can be advanced by managers and engi-neers upon whose "brains and skills" the state of industrial arts depends. In his uniquely comprehensive in-troduction, Daniel Bell discusses the associations and attitudes which mark Veblen as the prophetic outsider he remained most of his life.

Excerpt from The Engineers and the Price System The following series of papers are reprinted from the Dial, where they appeared, from time to time, during 1919. They discuss the Ameri can industrial situation as it stood at that time, during the months immediately following the Ar mistice; and more particularly certain difficulties involved in the industrial situation as it stood at that time. But, since then, no substantial change has taken effect in the state of industry, of such a character as to make this discussion less perti nent now than it was at the. Time these papers were first printed; indeed, the difficulties involved in or arising out of the industrial situation have only come forward into fuller bearing since then. Therefore, these papers are here reprinted with outchange. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
