Why do we buy what we do? How do our acts of – and ideas about – consumption impact our selves, our institutions, and our societies? An incisive response to these questions, Why I Buy explains how consumption came to imbue social and personal life with value. By exploring the relationship between our individual needs and our institutions, Gabriel shows how many of the difficulties faced by the public education and health-care sectors are a direct result of our consumer-centred society, and points the way towards a more sustainable future.
