Our economic system is based on consumption: The more stuff we buy, the more money moves in the economy, and hence the more the economy grows. If we stopped consuming, the economy would collapse and result in unemployment, poverty and violence.
Not surprisingly, we believe that consumerism is good for us, and there’s even an entire industry — the advertising industry — dedicated to making us want to consume without end. Yet, as I explain in the video below, consumerism is actually ruining our lives and the world, and unless we change our way of living, we’re soon going to face the tremendously negative impacts of our consumer behavior.
