Agree entirely, a consumerist model is great as long as people are struggling to make ends meet, or aspiring to obtain luxuries, but when most people are living so oppulently, and even the poorest among us seem to have cellphone and tvs and computers which couldn't be dreamed of 100 years ago, you have to wonder how much more society can consume? How much more can we buy? What other luxuries are available to us?

I think in part this feeds into our current economic difficulty, people simply don't need anything more, so they aren't buying.

Imagine if all that labour and effort focussed on consuming (and advertising to induce demand) was instead focussed on something useful?
