Die Krise des Konsums und der amerikanische Kapitalismus

Consumer Studies Research Network: Newsletter


Das interdisziplinäre, internationale Consumer Studies Research Network bringt in seinem Newsletter 13-1 einen Essay von George Ritzer mit dem Titel "The Dinosaurs of Consumption". Ritzer fragt unter anderem:

"More generally, and in Benjamin’s terms, one is led to wonder whether we have witnessed the end for many of the collective dream that untold happiness lies in consumption, especially in the excesses associated with the themselves excessive cathedrals of consumption."

Robert D. Manning schreibt dort über "Crisis in Consumption OR American Capitalism: A Sociological Perspective on the Consumer-Led Recession".
