"A fascinating look at one of the greatest social maladies of our time: overconsumption and materialism. Hosted by National Public Radio's Scott Simon, the program explores both the comical and sobering aspects of our consumerism and its enormous impact on families, communities and the environment. With the help of historians and archival film, Affluenza reveals the forces that have dramatically transformed us from a nation that prizes thriftiness - with strong beliefs in 'plain living and high thinking' - into the ultimate consumer society"--Container
Culture jam : how to reverse America's suicidal consumer binge, and why we must by Kalle Lasn( Book )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and German and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Culture Jammers Network: We are a loose global network of artists, activists, writers, students, educators and entrepreneurs who want to launch the new social activist movement of the information age. Our aim is to topple existing power structures and forge a major shift in the way we will live in the twenty-first century. We believe culture jamming will become to our era what civil rights was to the '60s, what feminism was to the '70s, what environmental activism was to the '80s. It will alter the way we live and think. It will change the way information flows, the way institutions wield power, the way TV stations are run, the way the food, fashion, automobile, sports, music and culture industries set their agendas. Above all, it will change the way we interact with the mass media and the way meaning is produced in our society."--Jacket
Meme wars : the creative destruction of neoclassical economics by Kalle Lasn( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the editor and magazine that started and named the Occupy Wall Street movement, Meme Wars lays out the next steps in rethinking and remaking our world with a new economic paradigm. Like Adbusters, the book is image-heavy and full-color throughout, and includes contributions from Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz, Paul Samuelson, George Akerlof, Lourdes Benera, Julie Matthaei, Manfred Max-Neef, David Orrell, Paul Gilding, Mathis Wackernagel and the father of ecological economics Herman Daly, among others. Meme Wars presents a new way of looking at our world that challenges and debunks many of the assumptions of neoclassical economics and brings to light a more ecological model. It takes into account psychonomics, bionomics, and other aspects of our physical and mental environment that are often left out in discussions of economics. Author Kalle Lasn calls it "a textbook for the future" that provides the building blocks, in texts and visuals, for a new way of looking at and changing our world. Through an examination of alternative economies, Lasn spurs students to become "barefoot economists" and to see that a humanization of economics is possible. Based on ideas that were presented in a special issue of Adbusters entitled Thought Control in Economics: Beyond the Growth Paradigm / An Activist Toolkit, Meme Wars will help move forward the Occupy Wall Street movement." -- Publisher's description

This book also features an in-depth analysis of his groundbreaking design for the Damien Hirst book I Want To Spend The Rest Of My Life, Everywhere, With Everyone, One To One, Always, Forever, Now, a unique collaboration between an artist and designer." "Also included in this book are his personal political projects, which demonstrate the passionate belief underlying all his work, that graphic design should be a catalyst for discussion and change."--Jacket
Japanese woman( Visual )

9 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lifestyle of women in Japan remained virtually unchanged for centuries. Then came World War II and Gen. McArthur's "Grand Design"--A plan for democracy that revolutionized the status of Japanese women. And yet, in some ways, things have not changed very much. Interviews with modern Japanese women, WW II and postwar footage, and depictions of the typical Japanese woman's lifestyle show that the West may have introduced "women's liberation" to Japan, but the women of this country are still searching for ways to overcome old prejudices and to develop their own unique approach to the issue
