I can’t wait to watch this! The whole issue of overconsumption has always fascinated me.
One small point of contention, though, is i feel it’s the consumer goods (not the money that was used to buy the consumer goods) that is fairly empty.
Money itself gives you options. You can weather the unexpected. You can keep a roof over your head. You can leave a toxic boss. Having a solid emergency fund can keep things from being worse than they would’ve otherwise been. It gives you the means to be less stressed during a difficult time.
On the other hand, consumer goods are hardly ever there for you in a pinch. If a person is out of work for ten months, what are the odds that the heated seats in your luxury car, will transform back into dollars? No chance whatsoever.
