The Virus and Depression

Early in 2008, speaking on Sky Arts' Book Show, Oliver James describes the 'Affluenza' virus, the notions of 'Selfish Capitalism' and 'Short-Termism' and offers his understanding as to how these factors have influenced the rising rates of depression and other mental illnesses.

  1. Wow, Oliver James really polarizes and it seems like he boldly speaks out what he believes. Wondering... could this be a remedy against Affluenza?

    Is he basically saying that Affluenza exists because woman are searching for rich (mainly English speaking) men respectively men wanting to attract women with money? I'd really like to speak to Danish women now...
