Yup, the biggest consumers in the world. It might be a good idea to slow down for a while, better for the wallet and better for the environment. Why do they think they are the only ones who deserve to have a good life?

Why do they think they are the only ones who deserve to have a good life?

I'd wager few in the world think about other countries when they are out shopping. Not sure what you are getting at with this question.

What I'm getting at is that they need to live in the largest houses, with pools, drive the largest cars and must have the highest salaries. Look at the American policies, force countries to cater them or they'll be boycotted or isolated. The Americans need to keep benefitting, no matter what.

I think true too as comments above say is that consumer products producers are using tactics in strategies to make people repeatedly buy from them, every piece of clothes or shoes just miss true quality to last, photos shines but on hand they lack, 2 weeks of use and they look trash, there are few responsible companies that keep durable quality product lines. I highlight the white sneakers and puff jackets, all in constant short life cycle and repeatedly purchase.
