Consumerism

barcode1

December 19, 2013 - 12:36 pm

The giving season is upon us!  At this time of selling, buying and gifting, it seems appropriate to step back and take a look at consumerism.  The non-profit organization, Humanities Washington hosts Think & Drinks throughout the state – public events that offer a topic and a panel of speakers on the topic to inspire thoughtful discussion in our communities.  They hosted events earlier in December on consumerism.  We listen to some history of consumerism and where we are with it today.

Guests:

  • Zaki Abdelhamid – Humanities Washington Program Manager
  • Linda Nash – Professor at University of Washington’s Department of History
