Due to the demand of products from distant countries, products need to be transported very far, which increases the use of energy. If we want to save our planet, we need to make changes. Each human being is responsible for the bad changes and has to do something for a healthier planet. Many people buy products as food or clothes that are transported to our supermarkets from very far away. They are not aware, or they don’t want to be aware of the high increase of energy use this causes and the consequences it takes.
According to Will Rogers, (1879), which says “Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people that they don't like.” (Will Rogers). This means, that there are a lot of people who are using money but that they are not obtain it. Those humans are cheating on other people in order to form relationship with them and have new friends. This money they do not deserve it, they earn it to show other people that they are own the best things, and they are more special than other people. In addition, people are buying many things that they don’t need to use them.
Believing that the only function of them in our lives is to brainwash people and influence people into purchasing unnecessary products or services. However, in my opinion, advertisements hold a lot more than just consumer influences and product promotions, it helps the growth of economy, and it helps people when choosing products, the power of its social and symbolic significance throughout our lives outweighs the idea. The first thing that I need to mention to support this idea is there are too many advertisements in everyday life, which makes a huge influence to consumers’ mind and make them buy things that they do not need. As the amount of advertising in our society is incredible, people cannot watch television, take a bus or even walk down the street without someone trying to sell them something or inform them of something. Recent research suggests that people living in a city today see up to 5,000 advertisements per day and 50% of those surveyed said they thought advertising today was out of control.
One common modern saying is that “money makes the world go round”. People living in developed nations, specifically the United States, often strive to become rich and live a life compromised of indulgences and luxuries. A topic of debate, however, is whether or not this way of living is selfish, and if we, as humans, have a responsibility to adopt alternate lifestyles that better foster the decline of poverty and, oppositely, the rise of adequate, healthy lifestyles for all of humanity. Both Dorothy Day in Loaves and Fishes and Peter Singer in “The Singer Solution to World Poverty” acknowledge the consequences of this desire for excessive amounts of money and, alternatively, advocate for a lifestyle of voluntary poverty. Dorothy Day lived her life serving the poor and now serves as a role model for people looking to live their lives dedicated to the less fortunate.
Although there were emerging markets for luxury goods across the globe, majority of income earners could not afford the premium price tags of these luxury goods. In view of this, substitutes seemed to be the bet for most people. Since luxury goods are not necessities but rather possessions meant to indulge the desires and internal need for prestige of buyers, many people who could not afford the premium prices deemed it better opting for substitutes. In addition to the buyer preference of the majority, substitutes were in abundance and readily available to all for all categories of luxury
Order batching happens in the struggle to decrease the ordering charges, to take the benefit of transport economics such as the full truck burden of economies, and to the profit from the sales incentives. Promotions frequently the effect in forward buying to benefit more from the lower values in the supply chain. Shortage gaming: clients frequently order more than they need throughout a specific period of the small supply, hopeful that the limited shipments they obtain will be adequate. The demands and the forecast incorrectness: everyone in the chain enhances a definite percentage to the demands guesses. The consequence is no reflectiveness of the true customer the demands.
In todays society we have become more and more materialistic. Many people only focus on money, things to buy and how they look outwardly. But we are also judging each other on how fancy cars we have, how big houses we have or how nicely we look. Because of the increased wealth in the western side of the world it has created a gap between the financially blessed and the financially less fortunate classes of society. Along with the fact that people focus a lot on money, comes the fact that some people can’t help thinking about when they can get there inheritance.
The trend where only the rich become richer can be solved by putting more attention on education and investing in human capital. This may not be effected within the next decade because of the growing divide between the poor and the rich in most countries, for example the United States and even Hong Kong. Often, the manner in which resources are being allocated is an obstacle to solving the problem. The problem is a vicious cycle and it will need the joint efforts of governments and all stakeholders to reduce the gap in economic
