The Story of Stuff


From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. And it exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever. Part IV.

President Eisenhower's Council of Economic Advisers’ chairman said that “The American economy's ultimate purpose is to produce more consumer goods.” More consumer goods? Our ultimate purpose? Not provide healthcare, education, or safe transportation, or sustainability or justice? Consumer goods? How did they get us to jump on board this program so enthusiastically? Well, two of their most effective strategies are planned obsolescence and perceived obsolescence.



Planned obsolescence is another word for designed for the dump. It means they actually make stuff to be useless as quickly as possible so we'll chuck it and buy a new one. It's oblivious with things like plastic bags and coffee cups, but now it's even big stuff, mops, DVDs, cameras, barbecues even, everything, even computers. Have you noticed that when you buy a computer now, the technology is changing so fast that in just a couple of years, it's actually an impediment to communication? I was curious about this so I opened up a big desktop computer to see what was inside. And I found out that the piece changes each year is just a tiny little piece in the corner. But you can't just change that one piece because each new version is a different shape. So you gotta chuck the whole thing and buy a new one. So I was reading industrial design journals from the 1950s when planned obsolescence was really catching on. These designers are so open about it. They actually discuss how fast can they make stuff break that still leaves the consumer having enough faith in the product to go out and buy another one. It was so intentional.



But stuff cannot break fast enough to keep this arrow afloat, so there's also perceived obsolescence. Now perceived obsolescence convinces us to throw away stuff that is still perfectly useful. How do they do that? Well they change the way the stuff looks. So if you bought your stuff a couple of years ago, everyone can tell that you haven't contributed to this arrow recently. And since the way we demonstrate our value is contributing to this arrow, it can be embarrassing. Like I've had the same fat, white computer monitor on my desk for five years. My co-worker just got a new computer. She has a flat, shiny, sleek monitor. It matches her computer, matches her phone, even her pen stand. She looks like she is driving in spaceship central, and I, I look like I have a washing machine on my desk.



Fashion is another prime example of this. Have you ever wondered why women's shoe heels go from fat one year to skinny the next to fat to skinny? It's not because there's some debate about which heel structures is the most healthy for women's feet. It's because wearing fat heels in a skinny heel year shows everybody that you haven't contributed to that arrow recently, so you are not as valuable as that person in a skinny heels next to you, or more likely in some ad. It's to keep us buying new shoes.



Advertisements and media in general play a big role in this. Each of us in the US is targeted with over 3000 advertisements today. We see more advertisements in one year than people 50 years ago saw in a lifetime. And if you think about it, what's the point of an ad except to make us unhappy with what we have? So 3000 times a today, we're told that our hairs are wrong, our skins are wrong, our clothes are wrong, our furniture are wrong, our cars are wrong, we are wrong. But it can all be made right if we just go shopping. Media also helps by hiding all of this and all of this. So the only part of the materials economy we see is the shopping. The extraction, production, and disposal all happen outside of our field of vision.



So in the US, we have more stuff than ever before. But polls show that our national happiness is actually declining. Our national happiness peaked in the 1950s, the same time as this consumption mania exploded. Hmm. Interesting coincidence. I think I know why. We have more stuff, but we have less time for the things that really make us happy. Friends, family, leisure time. We're working harder than ever. Some analysts say we have less leisure time than any time since feudal society. And you know what the two main activities are that we do with the scant leisure time we have? Watch TV and shop.

HOMEWORK
President Eisenhower consultated economic advisor chairman said the American economy's ultimate purpose is to produce more consumer goods. More consumer goods, our ultimate purpose? Not provide health care, education or safe transportation or sustainablity or justice? Consumer goods? How do they get us to jump on board this program so enthusiasticly? Well, two of their most effective strategies are planned obsolescence and perceived obsolesce. Planned obsolescence is another word for designed for the dump. It means that they actually make stuff to be useless as quickly as possible, so we'll * it and buy a new one. It's obvious with things like plastic bags and coffee cups, and now it's even big stuff. Mops, DVDs, cameras, barbecues even everything, even computers. Have you noticed that when you buy a computer now the technology is changing so fast that just in a couple of years it actually in pediment communication? I was curious about this, so I opened up a big desk top computer to see what was inside. And I found out that the piece that changes each year is just a tiny little piece in the corner. But you can't just chang one piece because each new version is a different shape. So you could * the whole thing and buy a new one.

So I was reading industial design journals in the 1950s, when planned obsolescence is really catching on. These designers are so open about it. They actually discuss how fast can they make stuff break that still leaves the consumer having the faith in the product to go and buy another one. It was so intensional.

But stuff cannot break fast enough to keep this  arrows flow. So they also perceived obsolesce. Now perceived obsolesce convinced us to throw away stuff that is still perfectly useful. How do they do that? Well, they change the way stuff looks. So if you bought your stuff a couple of years ago, everyone can tell that you havn't contributed to this arrow recently. And since the way we demonstrate our value is contribute the this arrow, it can be embarrassing.

Like I have the same fat white computer monitor on my desk for 5 years. My coworker just got a new computer. She has the flat shining sleek monitor. It matches her computer, matches her phone even her pen stand. She looks like she is driving a space ship *, I'd like a washing machine on my desk.

Fashion is another prime example of this. Have you ever wonder why women shoe heels go from fat one year to skinny next fat to skinny? It's not because there is some debate about which heel structure is most healthy for woman's feet. It's because wearing fat heels in a skinny heels' year shows everybody that you haven't contribute to that arrow recently so that you are not as valuable as that person in skinny heels next to you or more likely in some add. It's to keep us buying new shoes.

Advertisements and media in general play a big role in this. Each of us in the US is targeted to over 3,000 advertisements a day. We see more advertisements in one year than people in 50 years ago saw in a lifetime. And if you think about what's the point of add, except to make us unhappen with what we have. So 3,000 times a day, we were told that our hairs are wrong, our skins are wrong, our clothes are wrong, our furnitures are wrong, our cars are wrong, we are wrong. But it can all be made right if we just go shopping. Media also helps * all of this and all of this. So the only part of the material economy we see is the shopping. The extraction, production and disposal all happen outside of our field of vision. So in the US, we have more stuff than ever before, but poll show that our national happiness is actually declining. Our national happiness pit at the 1950s, the same time at this consumption * exploded. Uh, interesting coincidence. I think I know why. We have more stuff but we have less time for the things that really make us happy, friends, family, leisure time. We are working harder than ever. Some analysts say we have less leisure time than any time since feudal society. And you do know what the two main activities are there we do with the scanty leisure time we have? Watch TV and shop.

It's oblivious with things like plastic bags and coffee cups, but now it's even big stuff, mops, DVDs, cameras, barbecues even, everything, even computers. Have you noticed that when you buy a computer now, the technology is changing so fast that in just a couple of years, it's actually an impediment to communication? I was curious about this so I opened up a big desktop computer to see what was inside. And I found out that the piece changes each year is just a tiny little piece in the corner. But you can't just change that one piece because each new version is a different shape. So you gotta chuck the whole thing and buy a new one. So I was reading industrial design journals from the 1950s when planned obsolescence was really catching on. These designers are so open about it. They actually discuss how fast can they make stuff break that still leaves the consumer having enough faith in the product to go out and buy another one. It was so intentional.

 

But stuff cannot break fast enough to keep this arrow afloat, so there's also perceived obsolescence. Now perceived obsolescence convinces us to throw away stuff that is still perfectly useful. How do they do that? Well they change the way the stuff looks. So if you bought your stuff a couple of years ago, everyone can tell that you haven't contributed to this arrow recently. And since the way we demonstrate our value is contributing to this arrow, it can be embarrassing. Like I've had the same fat, white computer monitor on my desk for five years. My co-worker just got a new computer. She has a flat, shiny, sleek monitor. It matches her computer, matches her phone, even her pen stand. She looks like she is driving in spaceship central, and I, I look like I have a washing machine on my desk.

 

Fashion is another prime example of this. Have you ever wondered why women's shoe heels go from fat one year to skinny the next to fat to skinny? It's not because there's some debate about which heel structures is the most healthy for women's feet. It's because wearing fat heels in a skinny heel year shows everybody that you haven't contributed to that arrow recently, so you are not as valuable as that person in a skinny heels next to you, or more likely in some ad. It's to keep us buying new shoes.

 

Advertisements and media in general play a big role in this. Each of us in the US is targeted with over 3000 advertisements today. We see more advertisements in one year than people 50 years ago saw in a lifetime. And if you think about it, what's the point of an ad except to make us unhappy with what we have? So 3000 / times a today, we're told that our hairs are wrong, our skins are wrong, our clothes are wrong, our furniture are wrong, our cars are wrong, we are wrong. But it can all be made right if we just go shopping. Media also helps by hiding all of this and all of this. So the only part of the materials economy we see is the shopping. The extraction, production, and disposal all happen outside of our field of vision.

 

So in the US, we have more stuff than ever before. But polls show that our national happiness is actually declining. Our national happiness peaked in the 1950s, the same time as this consumption mania exploded. Hmm. Interesting coincidence. I think I know why. We have more stuff, but we have less time for the things that really make us happy. Friends, family, leisure time. We're working harder than ever. Some analysts say we have less leisure time than any time since feudal society. And you know what the two main activities are that we do with the scant leisure time we have? Watch TV and shop.

President, concil economic adviser's chairman said, that the American economy's automatic purpose is to produce more consumer goods. More consumer goods? Our automatic purpose? Not provide healthcare, education, or safe transportation or sustainability or justice. Consumer goods? How did they get us to jump on board this program so enthusiastically? Well, two of their most effective stategies are planned obsesslesence and proseived obsesslesence.
Planned obsesslesence is another word for designed for the dump. It means they actually make stuff to be useless as quickly as possible, so we will track it by anyone. It obviously with things like plastic bags and coffee cups, but now even big stuffs, mops, DVDs, cameras, barbeques, even everything, even computers. Have you notice that when you buy a computer now the technology is changing so fast that just a couple of years it actually in pallament communication? I was curious about this so I opened up a big desk computer to see what was inside. And I found out that the piece changes each year is just the tiny little piece in the corner, but you can't just change that one piece because each new vision is of different type, so you could chock the whole thing and buy a new one. So I was reading industrial design gena in the 1950s when planned up's lesson was really catching on. These disigners are so open about it. They actually discuss how fast can they make stuff break, they still leave the consumer having a face in the product to go and buy another one. It was so intensional, but stuff can not break fast that keep the arrow flow, so there is also proseived obsesslesence.
Now proseived obsesslesence convinced us to throw away stuff, that is still perfectly useful. How did they do that? Well they change the way the stuff looks. So if you buy your stuff a couple of years ago, everyone can tell you have contributed to this arrow recently. And since the way we demonstrated are value is contributing to this arrow, it can be embarassing. Look I had the same fat wide computer monitor on my desk for five years. My co-work just got a new computer. She has a flat shiny slik monitor, in matches a computer, in matches a phone, even a pen's. She looks like she is driving a spaceship center. And I, I look like a washing machine on my desk. Fashion is another prime example of this. Have you ever wondered why women's shoe heel is go from fat one year to the next fat to skiny? It's not because there is some debay about which heel structure is most healthy fluence feet, it's because when in fat heels and skiny heel a year, so it's everybody's  you have to contribute to this arrow recently, so is valuable that person in skiny heels next to you, or more likely in some egg. It's to keep us buying new shoes. Advertisements and media in general plays a big role in this. Each of us in US is targeted with over 3,000 advertisements a day. We see more advertisements in one year than perple fifty years ago saw in a lifetime. And if you think about it what the point of an ad except to make us unhappy with what we have, so 3,000 times a day were told our hair is wrong, skin is wrong, our closh is wrong, funiture is wrong, car is wrong, we are wrong, but it can all be made right if we just go shopping. Media also helps behading all of these and all of these. So the only part of material's economy we see is the shopping. Extraction, production and disposal all happens outside of our feel and vison. So in the US we have more stuff than ever before, but poll show that our national happiness is actually declining. Our national happiness is peat in the 1950s, the same time that this consumption exploded. Um, interesting coincedence. I think I know why, we have more stuff but we have less time for the things that really make us happy, friends, family, lesure time. We are wokring hard than ever. Some analyss say we have less lesure time than anytime  society. And you know what the two main activities we do with the lesure time we have: wach TV and shop!

Not provide health care, education, or safe transportation, or sustainability or justice? Consumer goods? How do they get us to jump on border this program …?

Well, two of the most effective strategies are planned obsolescence and perceived obsolescence. Planned obsolescence is another word for “designed for the dump”. It means they actually make stuff to be useless as quickly as possible so we’ll * it, and buy a new one. It’s obvious with things like plastic bags and coffee cups. But now it’s even big stuff, mops, DVDs, cameras, *, even everything, even computers. Have you noticed when you buy a computer, now the technology is changing so fast that just a couple of years, it’s actually in * communication? I was curious about this. So I opened up a big desk-top computer to see what was inside. And I found out that the pieces changes each year is just a tiny little piece in the corner. But you can’t just change that one piece, because each new version is in different shape. So you could * the whole thing, and buy a new one.

So I was reading industrial design * in * 1915s when plenty obsolescence are really catching on. These designers are so open about it. They actually discuss how fast can they make stuff break? That still leaves the consumer having enough face in the product to go and buy another one. It was so intentional. But stuff can not break fast enough to keep this arrow float. So this is also perceived obsolescence. Now perceived obsolescence convinces us to * stuff that is still perfectly useful. How do they do that? Well, they change the way the stuff looks so if you bought your stuff a couple of years ago, * can tell that you haven’t contributed this arrow recently. And since the way we demonstrate our value is contributing to this arrow. It can be embarrassing.

Like I had the same fat, wide computer monitor on my desk for 5 years, my co-worker just got a new computer. She has a flat, shinning, slick monitor. Imagine the computer, imagine the phone, even the pen stand. She looks like she is driving a spaceship central, and I, * like a wash machine on my desk.

Fashion is another primer example of this. Have you ever wondered why women shoe heel go from fat one gear * next to fat to thinness. It’s not because there’re some debates about which heel structures are most healthy for women’s feet. It’s because wearing in fat heel and thin heel a year, shows everybody * you have contributed to that arrow recently. So you are not as valuable as that person in thin heel next you. Or more likely in some ads, it’s to keep us buying new shoes.

We see more advertisements in one year than people fifty years ago saw on their lifetime. And if you think about what’s the point of ad except to make us unhappy with what we have. So 3 thousand times a day, we’re told our hairs wrong, our skirts wrong, our clothes wrong, our furniture wrong, our cars wrong, we’re wrong. But it can all be made right if we just go shopping. Media also helps behind all of this and all of this. So the only part of the material economy we see is the shopping. The extraction, production and disposal all happens outside our feel and vision.

President Essenhower's council of Economics advisers' chairman said "TheAmericans economys' ultimate purpose is produce more consumer goods, more consumer goods are ultimate purpose, not provide health care education of safe transportation, or sustainable abilities, or justice? Consumer goods? how do they get us to jump on broad this programme so enthuastically? Well, two of the most effective strategies are planned obsolescence(废弃) and perceived obsolescence.

Planned obsolescence is another word for designed for the dump, it means it actually make stuff useless as quickly as possible, so will check it and buy a new one. It is obvious with things plastic bags, coffee cups, and how even big stuff, mops, DVDs, cameras, barbeques, even everything, even computers. Have you noticed when you buy a computer, and now the techology is changing so fast, and it just a couple of years, the saction inparliament communication, I always curious about this, so I open it up a big desktop computer to see what it is inside. And I found the pieces of changes each year, It is just a tiny little piece in the corner, but you can't just change that one piece because each new version is a different shape, so you could chop the whole thing, and buy a new one. So I was reading the industrial design journals in 1950s when planned obsolescence is really catching on, these designers are so open about it, they actually discuss how fast can they make stuff break that still lives in the consumer have enough faith in the product than to go to buy another one. It was so intentional.

But stuff can not break fast enough to keep this era flow, so there's also perceived obsolescence. Now perceived obsolescence convinced us to throw away stuff that is still perfectly useful. How do they do that? Well they change the way the stuff looks. So if you bought your stuff a couple of years ago, everyone can tell that you haven't contributed to this era recently, and since the way we demonstrate our value is contributing to this era, it can be embarrassing, like I had the same flat, white computer monitor on my desk for five years, my coworker just got a new computer, she has a flat, shiny, snik monitor, it matches her computer, matches her phone, even her penstand. She looks like she is driving in a spaceship central, and I, I look like I have a washing machine on my desk.
