Consumer Goods

Famous quotes containing the words consumer and/or goods:

    The poverty of our century is unlike that of any other. It is not, as poverty was before, the result of natural scarcity, but of a set of priorities imposed upon the rest of the world by the rich. Consequently, the modern poor are not pitied ... but written off as trash. The twentieth-century consumer economy has produced the first culture for which a beggar is a reminder of nothing.
    John Berger (b. 1926)

    He was a laborer. Sweated his goods out for nine pound a week. He never had it so good.
    Alan Sillitoe (b. 1928)
