9780143117636: Cheap

From shuttered factories to look-alike high streets and shopping centres, the Western world has been transformed by its relentless fixation on low prices. This pervasive yet little examined obsession is arguably the most powerful and devastating market force of today - the engine of globalisation, outsourcing, planned obsolescence and economic instability in an increasingly unsettled world. In this myth-shattering, closely reasoned and exhaustively reported investigation, Shell exposes the astronomically high cost of living ''cheap''.

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 138 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A myth-shattering investigation of the true cost of America s passion for finding a better bargain From the shuttered factories of the Rust Belt to the strip malls of the Sun Belt-and almost everywhere in between-America has been transformed by its relentless fixation on low price. This pervasive yet little- examined obsession with bargains is arguably the most powerful and devastating market force of our time, having fueled an excess of consumerism that blights our land-scapes, escalates personal debt, lowers our standard of living, and even skews of our concept of time. Spotlighting the peculiar forces that drove Americans away from quality, durability, and craftsmanship and towards quantity, quantity, and more quantity, Ellen Ruppel Shell traces the rise of the bargain through our current big-box profusion to expose the astronomically high cost of cheap.
