The Future of Consumer Society

The Future of Consumer Society

Maurie J. Cohen shows how consumer society is changing due to demographic ageing, rising income inequality, political paralysis, resource scarcity, and steady jobs being replaced by freelancing. He examines how people are striving to find new ways to ensure livelihoods and the role that worker-consumer cooperatives could play.
