Bill Butler's insight:

Vision contributor Bill Butler interviews Beatrice Fernando about her experience of being sold into servitude in Lebanon. See her story in the article Down to Slavery.

The expression was coined by the economist and sociologist Thorstein Veblen in his book The Theory of the Leisure Class (1899) as a way of describing the pattern of consumption he observed in the 19th century.
