Consumption (Economics) -- Moral and ethical aspects.; Since 1945; Consumer behavior - Australia.
The Western world is in the grip of a consumption binge that is unique in human history. We aspire to the life-styles of the rich and famous at the cost of family, friends and personal fulfilment. Rates of stress, depression and obesity are up as we wrestle with the emptiness and endless disappointments of the consumer life. 'Affluenza' pulls no punches, claiming our whole society is addicted to over-consumption. It tracks how much Australians overwork, the growing mountains of stuff we throw out, the drugs we take to 'self-medicate' and the real meaning of 'choice'. Fortunately there is a cure.
