What happens when you CAN’T shop? When all the stores in your town are closed and your supermarket stops selling anything beyond the basic necessities? Even major online shops are running out of merchandise or have month-long waiting periods for delivery. What’s an eager consumer to do?
And a perhaps more interesting question: is this a good thing? Of course no one wants the economy to collapse or people to lose their businesses or jobs, but could we all get used to not constantly buying stuff, and might that be a good thing? We discuss this and more on this week’s mini-episode.
