The High Price of Materialism from the Simplicity Collective

Tim Kasser is a psychologist that has spent many years researching into the effects of materialistic values and practices on human wellbeing. I highly recommend his excellent book, “The High Price of Materialism,” but for those who only have five minutes to spare, many of the key insights of that text are summarised in a new educational video Kasser has made. It’s only five minutes long, but it provides a very concise introduction to consumer culture from a psychologist’s perspective.
