Materialistic Life & Consumption Economy

Dec. 17, 2007

We have heard many clichés about “Consumption Culture”, “Environment”, “Consuming Society”, “Renewable Energy”, “Capitalism & Consumption”, … There is a good video presentation by Annie Leopard which simply and without hypes gives us a very clear picture of the high price that the whole world is paying for the consequences of consumption-centered societies.

This presentation discusses the problems that traditionally developed countries and especially United States have been causing, however the other developing countries such as China have also started to contribute to it considerably. We strongly suggest you to watch this 20-minute video presentation at:
