Rising incomes, rising tests - Page 2

post #16 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'd like to share another interesting article: http://www.booknoise.net/johnseabroo...ulture/nobrow/ One of the points made by the author: expensive labels get their inspiration from regular brands worn by regular people rather than vice versa. I think this is not always true.

There's this one house in my neighborhood, a little two bedroom ranch house, cute as a button. Parked on the drive: a Hummer, a huge pickup truck, a Mercedes SUV. Drive your tomorrow tomorrow cards to heaven if you want. I'm not sure money or credit gets you any nearer to smart, happy, love, or peace. But these may not be the goals our society is trying to get us to focus on.

gregory, nice recommendation on nobrow. like many books penned by staff writers for the new yorker, nobrow is taut and often funny. another book which touches on these issues is "trading up" (which was writen by a bcg partner). i haven't read it yet, so i can't give it the same glowing sendoff that i gave to nobrow.
