We hear a special 2009 archive edition of The Marc Steiner Show, where we asked the question: Is Consumerism Bad For Us? We all work so hard to make money and then reward ourselves for our hard work by buying things – homes, cars, boats, clothes, good food. But are we biologically ill-suited for consumerism?
Peter Whybrow thinks so, as he argued inThe Chronicle of Higher Education. We talked about the way we live our lives and how we could get off the hedonistic treadmill.
