Quote of the Day

“A consumer economy only works if consumption of goods provides only temporary pleasure.  That is, if happiness is infinitely deferred, so that buyers continue to buy more and more goods and services.  By definition, the consumer can never be satisfied, at rest or happy.  Which means (s)he will always feel lacking.  The pursuit of this sort of happiness creates a vicious circle of growing anxiety and dissatisfaction.”

– Tirdad Derakhshani
