The Story of Stuff

For those who study Economics and Accounting, those who have an interest in the environment and - well for everyone really.  Here is a marvellous clip from You Tube on Stuff!  If you've ever wondered why we are consumers, how our economy evolved and why we do what we do when we are shopping this clip will tell you in a really amusing and engaging way.  (Make sure you have plenty of bandwidth left because it goes for 20 minutes)

"From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.  Here is their website
