More Stuff

Our local town just opened a new shopping centre. This has been planned, re-planned, resisted and modified since 1961. Well, finally it is open.

There's lots of lovely shops full of lots of lovely stuff that we have to go and buy. We must buy stuff or else jobs will be lost. It doesn't matter if the old stuff hasn't worn out yet. What you need is new stuff.

In fact we need to buy more stuff this year than we did last year so that the economy can grow.

Without growth the financial system falls apart, apparently. Your pitiful pension is caused by low share values and that, my friend, is your own fault because you didn't buy lots of stuff.

Ever wondered what the point of all this is?
