The World Needs More Consumption

The vast majority of people in the world need more money to buy more stuff. The posters at Starbucks of humble farmers making organic coffee - well, most of those farmers want their kids to go to college and own big houses with heat and air conditioning. They don't want their kids to work so damn hard for so little. Most of the world's population does not want to be a favored servant smiled on by a kind overlord. Their greatest dreams in life do not include working in a factory, though it may be a means to an end. The thing about humans is once they get a toe on the ladder, they want to keep climbing.
