spending money to create impressions

Tim Jackson at TED: "We spend money we don't have on things we don't need to create impressions that won't last on people we don't care about."

Then at some point, we have to dispose of the crap we didn't really want in the first place. That costs, too, and the burden on the environment is enormous.

Tim Jackson is an economist and the author of Prosperity without Growth.
