The Economy

That insatiable appetite anything or has little to do with progress towards a possible and still unlikely era no-hunger, post-scarcity, but with the more primitive era of gluttony and greed. Not to mention an instinct animal, because the Lions monopolize the Savannah nor practised the systematic extermination of their victims, and because pigs up to sate ever. The culture of consumerism has erred in several respects. First, he has contradicted the above-mentioned condition, passing over the cultural diversities, substituting their universal trinkets or creating a pseudo diversity where a Japanese worker or a German office worker can enjoy two days of a Peruvian handicrafts made in China or five days of the most beautiful Venetian blinds imported from Taiwan before that break by the use. Secondly, because it has also threatened the ecological balance with their unlimited extractions and their returns in form of Immortals wastes. Concrete examples can observe them in our surrounding. We could say that it is fortunate that a worker can enjoy the amenities that were previously them reserved only to the upper classes, the unproductive classes, the consuming classes.

However, that cultural and ideological pressure-induced consumption is has become many times in order to the worker and an instrument of the economy. Which logically means that the individuo-herramienta has become a means for the economy as individuo-consumidor. In almost all countries developed or developing of this model of development, furniture that invade the markets are designed to last a few years. Or a few months. They are nice, they have good eyesight as almost everything in the culture of consumption, but if we look at them staring scratches, lose a screw or are false square. Now an exoticism is the concern of my family of carpenters by improving the design of a chair so that it lasted a hundred years. But new disposable furniture does not concern us mostly because we know that they have cost little money and that, in two or three years we will buy new ones, which incidentally gives more interest and variation in the decoration of our homes and offices and especially stimulate the economy of the world.
