The overspent American Why we want what we don't need

Kanopy (Firm)

Streaming video - 2014

This powerful video scrutinizes what Juliet Schor calls "the new consumerism" - a national phenomenon of upscale spending shaped and reinforced by a media system driven by commercial interests. Illustrated with hundreds of media examples, The Overspent American draws attention to the costs (both financial and social) of the relentless search for happiness and identity through spending.
