The High Price Of Materialism

| June 16, 2012 | 0 Comments

This is an excellent video produced by the Center for a New American Dream, and read by Tim Kasser.  Kasser explains how America’s consumer oriented culture undermines our well-being. When people buy into the ever-present marketing messages that “the good life” is “the goods life,” they not only use up Earth’s limited resources, but they are less happy and less inclined toward helping others.  The animation both lays out the problems of excess materialism and points toward solutions that promise a healthier, more just, and more sustainable life.
