Does globalization reinforce conspicuous consumption?

Asked by: Tiimow
  • I believe globalization reinforces conspicuous consumption.

    The more globalized we become, the more we are exposed to advertisement, goods, and ideas. Yes, we can make "rational" choices about our consumption behaviors, but we are more likely to develop conspicuous consumption if we keep getting new (idolized) ideas of consumption. And because the world is (supposedly) becoming more like a connected sphere, we look out to become the ideal consumer that possesses certain quality goods.
    I'm very interested to know what everybody thinks and what other aspects we can look at conspicuous consumption from.
