The Good Consumer
Neil Boorman offers a new perspective on the Consumer.
"Regardless what the government, the Economists and the Brands say - it is our absolute right to save raher than spend money. We funded the boom, we funded the bank bailout, now we're expected to fund the recovery. But we cannot shop our way out of the long term problem: over-consumption to almost all global challenges. As nice as our luxury lifestyles are, we cannot run away from the problem for much longer."
