I just ran into this link while doing some internet research regarding taxes. Since it is unrelated to taxes, either this was a case of search engine confusion or serious procrastination on my part. Basically, I found this educational online video about consumerism, consumption and the global economy. It was an interesting and eye-opening 20 minutes and 40 seconds, and well worth a viewing. It smacks of environmental guilt-fueled propaganda for recycling and tree-hugging, but we have to start somewhere in repairing the production and destruction processes that are currently poisoning people and land. It is called The Story of Stuff.
