Objective Proficiency p 45. Article: Consumerism. Writing

Your local newspaper has asked readers to contribute with an article addressing the following questions:
  • How important is consumerism in our society?
  • Is too much emphasis placed on the purchasing and consumption of material possessions nowadays?
  • To what extent is the pursuit of economic goals at the expense of environmental, social, or ethical concerns? 
  • What are the alternatives to the current consumerism trends and our consumption behaviour?
You can start your research here:
