Consumption is so 2003

Great quote from Reiner Evers, Trendwatching.com in Holland Herald (April 2007)

“… consumption is too accessible now. What really counts today is status – and that comes from your eco-credentials, or your status in the virtual world, or your creativity as a consumer.”

Terrific quote found via The Hidden Persuader.

  1. Really insightful. I think status will also come form altruism, and the ability to be able to go without when there is a choice to have.
