We have a case of a Catch-22—consumerism traps them in a destitute life, anti-consumerism strips their only means of feeding their family. When weighing the pros and cons of each ideology, ethical consumption seems like the better option. However, is it the best option? Will there be detriments in the global society if consumerism was eradicated? Or should it even be eradicated at all?
Through my analysis, the main stakeholders such as the management will be quite affected since they will lose their credibility and profit by many loyal and regular customers leaving. Profit is the most important thing management always focuses on to bring above their costs and if there is any strike or huge amounts of boycotting, the management will be in trouble. Not is very important for business as it’s a special tool for marketing and customer benefits. In addition, the employee will be affected for most since many have already lost their and possibly in the future can lose their jobs. This goes for mainly full-time employees because it may be their only source of income that can give them a decent living to support themselves and their families.
For the irregularities of the industry, ASIC is negligence of duty, did not stop this bad behaviour in time, industry supervisor did no financial planners responsibilities for constraints which made the financial market and the customer have suffered huge losses. In contrast, Australian Securities and Investment Commission, as a industry supervisor, once it's regulation when there is no practical significance, its power will be built on stilts, soon loses control of the industry, causing irreversible decline.

Synthesize above industry vocational demand, as a financial planner, fulfil the fiduciary obligation to perform, to keep the customer loyalty. Only in this way can harmony
(Collins, 2015) But then continues with some points that seem more valid to me, "The general complaint about globalization is that it has made the rich richer while making the non-rich poorer"(Collins, 2015) and "Globalization is deindustrializing America as we continue to outsource both manufacturing blue collar and white collar jobs.

Buy Less Week would function similarly to Buy Nothing Day, but would have a less severe impact on the working people. BLW would involve buying nothing except what you absolutely need- no desserts or “treat yourself”s (not even if the candle is almost seventy percent off). This way, if someone is out of toothpaste, then they can buy toothpaste that day. Businesses would have heads up that sales would be down for a week, and would be asked to avoid reactionary decisions to seeing the numbers. Buy Less Week would also bring more attention to the goal of Buy Nothing Day.

Americans and others around the world are often struck with what is deemed “shopaholic syndrome.” The symptoms of this prevalent matter are spending preposterous amounts of time and money shopping. To treat this, a Buy Nothing Day was conceived and established in some countries.

Although these rich Americans want the government to handle the issue of taxation they feel posing higher taxes on them is just not fair. They feel they are hard working citizens who spend a great deal of time working at their business. It is through risks that they may have taken that got them to the positions that they got to today.
