I'm none the wiser in coming to a conclusion on this matter. After all I'm just a grey airhead and not a sophisticated philosopher. However the programme has raised more questions for me to think about that I thought I'd share!
- Does increased consumption just make the rich richer or can it lift others out of poverty?
- Is it fair for the relatively well-off to adopt strategies that deny people with less resources a similiar standard of living to their own?
- Can many people adopting a personal approach to careful financial control really yield global benefits or are the greedy rich so powerful that they will negate our best efforts?
- How do I target my buying power to achieve the most benefit with emphasis on how best to benefit poorer overseas economies.
