Along with production innovations, these knowledge increments change prices, adjust demand to the technological structure and promote growth through increased roundaboutness. Consumer Capitalism explores how capitalistic growth surveys existential distress rather than welfare, but consumers' innovative capacity must be kept high, sustaining their illusion that by owning capital-embodying commodities they can experience life. In this sense, consumers are capitalists, although the capital appropriated through consumption is not further productive."--Jacket." ;
