Wants? Needs?

Given the discussion on wedding expenses and about luxuries and necessities in general, you might find of interest this article from Reason Magazine that I have on occasion assigned to the composition classes in my college. The article is entitled "Needing the Unnecessary: the democratization of luxuries."

Great article. Should be required reading for everyone in Klal. Wht really got me was a line that came early--Living is more a question of what one spends than what one makes. Seems like a total reversal of what common sense would tell us, but what has common sense got to do with how we spend now.
