Big Ideas That Changed The World - Consumerism

Jonathon Porritt talks about how consumerism has created unsustainable inequalities and threatens to tear apart the fabric of our society. He explains why he thinks consumerism is now more powerful than any cause or even religion and how it has reached into every corner of the globe."Our love of shopping, quite literally, threatens the end of the world as we know it today. As our population grows and we go on consuming more and more, the eco-systems on which we depend are now close to collapse. It's all down to the power of modern consumerism". Jonathon Porritt
