The Marc Steiner Show

Changing Attitudes Toward Consumerism?

We’re joined by Laurence Kotlikoff, Professor of Economics at Boston University and research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research, and Elizabeth Haynes of Haynes and Company Consulting and former head of Strategic Planning at Urban Outfitters.

Kotlikoff and Haynes discuss the changing American mindset toward
consumerism.  Do the recent changes in our attitudes toward spending
represent a real sea change in our thinking, or if it’s simply a
fashionable market trend that will diminish as the economy improves?

Check out Rob Hiaasen’s article in Urbanite Magazine this month for more on this topic.
