The world is shaped by how we buy and sell. We are trapped in an endless loop of wanting and buying more.
Currently, the weight rests on the shoulders of the buyer to break out of this hamster wheel - to 'vote with their dollar', to make the ethical choice.
But we are missing half of the equation.
It's high time we, as sellers of goods and services, take responsibility for the part we play in the cycle of consumerism. The way we sell right now uses the same rules handed to us by mad men of the 1950's - scare tactics and manipulation - and they are keeping our buyers weak and insatiable.
