You know, that feeling that you have the burning desire to purchase a new car, couch or flat-screen TV. Its hard to avoid catching the symptoms of Affluenza this time of year. Even though I have a great 2001 Audi S4, I get this feeling that I neednot wanta new S4, or maybe the cool new Dodge Magnum. The only antidote for the onset of this disease is to read. Some suggestion medicine includes The Overspent American, No Logo, Culture Jam, and Affluenza
