Conspicuous Consumption

Posted on

 

In what ways do we within society participate in conspicuous consumption? How does conspicuous consumption disrupt our personal, social and economic lives? How much do we know and understand of how we decide what to spend our money on? Why do people in every income bracket feel that they are just getting by? Why is household debt at an all-time high? How does the pattern of conspicuous consumption distract us from what is really valuable in our lives? Why are depression and suicide rates so high in developed countries? And how come we are never satisfied? This and much more discussed today with Maite Zamora Moreno and JL Kenney
