We shop for luxury these days. Everyone wants the best, And it isn't a bad thing, To express people yourself with expensive things.


While its true some purchases are made purely for prestige. The vast majority of retail activity is done out of necessity. Luxury requires purchasing power. That of which many of us, Sadly are lacking. Wages are stagnating while the prices of consumer goods are on the rise. Affordability plays the strongest role when one makes a purchase. People want more for less. People desire luxury but practically speaking its about affordability and stretching the dollar as far as it will go.

Who won the debate:-Vote Checkmark
Reasons for voting decision: Con has clearly shown that consumers as a whole are driven towards buying goods that are more necessary and therefore more inelastic in value in comparison to luxury goods. Con has clearly shown that our desire to purchase luxury does not actually mean we shop for that the most. Therefore, case falls to Con.
