RESUMO: O conceito de racionalidade � uma das no��es que mais tem sido alvo de debate e controv�rsia no seio da ci�ncia econ�mica. O paradigma da escolha racional, que envolve os comportamentos de maximiza��o do lucro das empresas e de maximiza��o da utilidade das fam�lias, pode ser posto em causa por um importante n�mero de reflex�es que recordam que o processo de escolha humana n�o � isento de erros, n�o ignora factores emocionais nem se concretiza fora de um contexto social onde a interac��o com terceiros determina comportamentos. O presente texto procura caracterizar o modo como os economistas t�m trabalhado a no��o de ...
is a social and economic order that is based on the systematic creation and fostering of a desire to purchase goods or services in ever greater amounts. The term is often associated with criticisms of consumption starting with Thorstein Veblen or, more recently by a movement called Enoughism . Veblen's subject of examination, the newly emergent middle class arising at the turn of the twentieth century, comes to full fruition by the end of the twentieth century through the process of globalization . It also may refer to a movement seeking to protect and inform consumers by requiring such practices as honest packaging and ...

led “quack” advertisements became a problem, which ushered in the regulation of advertising content. As the economy expanded during the 19th century, &#97d;ertising grew alongside.

Egyptians used papyrus to make sales messages and wall posters. Commercial messages and political campaign displays have been found in the ruins of Pompeii and ancient Arabia. Lost and found advertising on papyrus was common in Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. Wall or rock painting for commercial advertising is another manifestation of an ancient advertising form, which is present to this day in many parts of Asia, Africa, and South America. The tradition of wall painting can be traced back to Indian rock art paintings that date back to 4000 BC.[4] History tells us that Out-of-home advertising and billboards are the oldest forms ... market research, surveys and trends

The Roaring Twenties
The end of World War I saw the United States retreat into isolation. The Senate refused to ratify the Versailles Peace Treaty that ended World War I. The U.S. failed to join the League of Nations--the international organization that was the less-successful interwar predecessor of the United Nations. The U.S. raised tariffs early in the 1920s (although not to levels that appreciably discouraged imports). Most important, perhaps, the 1920s saw he end of free immigration into the United States. Migration from Asia had been restricted for several generations. Migration from Africa had never been an issue. But up ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
We're Speeding On The Road To Extinction
he catastrophe confronting us is the severest that life has ever faced and incredibly its one of our own making. The scientific and technological advances that civilisation experienced in the past two centuries changed the world from a vibrant diverse ecosystem to a fragile one. It’s hard to find any branch of the ecosystem that is in better condition to support human life today than it was at the beginning of the industrial revolution. This is in spite of the exponential increased in knowledge and abilities. It has taken great ingenuity and an overwhelming amount of hard work that was at times very dangerous and injurious ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Wolfgang Tillmans: the lightness of being
who was born in Germany but has lived for most of the past 20 years in London, won the Turner prize in 2000. It was the first time the prize had been won by an artist who worked principally with photographs, and though by this time the debate about whether photography was art was over in all but the most sclerotic circles, Tillmans raised other concerns. For most of the 1990s he had used magazines, particularly the street-style magazine i-D, as one of the outlets for his pictures, at the same time as he was exhibiting them in contemporary art galleries in London, New York and Cologne and in museums round the world. Most young ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

SSPP: The new politics of consumption: promoting sustainability in ...
While mainstream policymakers in the United States have to date evinced little interest in sustainable consumption, this does not mean that a political agenda designed to highlight the adverse impacts of consumerism has failed to take root in the country. In fact, a considerable number of activities are occurring that are broadly consistent with the aims of sustainable consumption. Inchoate though these efforts may be, there are indications that some proponents are beginning to link up and to forge a more readily definable social movement. The following discussion considers these multifarious expressions in accordance with a ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

This is a very insightful and thoughtful question that is so very pertinant and critical when it comes to what I’d agree is the major cause, or one of maybe three, for the American, and then the entire developed world’s part in our planet’s degridation and all human-caused climate change in the environment.   Another difficult part of coming to terms with this problem with advertising and the consumerism it promotes is that this kind of careless consumerism is what drives what our economy.  Without this kind of consumerism -- or when more and more people realize that ...
