Summary
  • Affluenza is a fascinating look at one of the greatest social maladies of our time: overconsumption and materialism. Hosted by National Public Radio's Scott Simon, the program explores both the comical and sobering aspects of our consumerism and its enormous impact on families, communities and the environment. With the help of historians and archival film, Affluenza reveals the forces that have dramatically transformed us from a nation that prizes thriftiness - with strong beliefs in "plain living and high thinking" - into the ultimate consumer society. - Container
  • Special features include: filmed interviews: "From the filmmaker," a conversation with John de Graaf, "A simple calling" with voluntary simplicity expert Cecile Andrews, "The two y's, democracy and the economy" with economist Peter Dorman; Adbusters "uncommercials": seven hard-hitting 15- and 30-second PSAs; and two separate guides: one for teacher,s and the other for interested viewers - are available in Adobe Acrobat PDF format for easy viewing on the DVD-ROM portion of this disc. - Insert
