How can we say that promoting consumerism has negatively impacted our country??
Some points are
1) Adverse effect on GDP of our nation
2) People are forgetting our cultures and traditions
3) Lower rate of rupee in relation with other currencies for example $1= 67 RS

"the theory that an increasing consumption of goods is economically desirable; also : a preoccupation with and an inclination toward the buying of consumer goods " merriamwebster.com

I Con, state that consumerism has positively impacted our country. Consumerism means more people buying goods and services. More goods and services being bought means more jobs. If people just hoarded all their money, the economy would stagnate. Everyone would lose.
