We are the product of our society. Americans are among some of the wealthiest citizenry of the world; our opportunities are boundless. Our society is one of rapidly-developing technologies and state of the art research and developments. That’s just the way it is. Our economy depends on our consistent purchasing of technological goods. In America, it’s not a question of “Do I want this” or “Do I need this,” it’s simply the society we live in: a prosperous one, that encourages capitalistic spending.
