Get Rich Slowly has a great post about the story of stuff.

The Story of Stuff is an interesting short film, particularly in its last half. Writer and narrator Annie Leonard explains that the “golden arrow of consumption” is the heart of the modern economic system, a system that’s really only existed since the 1950s.

The excerpt makes an interesting point tying planned/perceived obsolescence and the general happiness decline since the 50’s.
