A New Role for Consumption?

Written by Gardner. Assadourian & Sarin

In order to advance the tentative interest in a new role for consumption, any vision will need to include responses to 4 key questions:

  • Is the global consumer class experiencing a higher quality of life from its growing levels of consumption?
  • Can societies pursue consumption in a balanced way. especially in putting consumption in harmony with the natural environment?
  • Can societies reshape consumer options to offer genuine choices?
  • Can societies make a priority of meeting the basic needs of all?
