  10. 10. Work Cited - "Good Life." Merriam-Webster. N.p., n.d. Web. 30 May 2011. I got the definition of “good life” from this website because it is a reliable online dictionary. - Huxley, Aldous. Brave new world, . New York: Harper & Bros., 1946. Print. It was necessary for me to use this book because the comparison portrayed in the presentation was based on this novel. - Mayell, Hillary . "As Consumerism Spreads, Earth Suffers, Study Says." National Geographic. N.p., 12 Jan. 2004. Web. 30 May 2011. This source is reliable because it talks about the effects of the contemporary consumerist society. In the text, I could find some details about what people want in their lives to make them good, and how they were related to consumerism. - Shah, Anup. "Consumption and Consumerism â!! Global Issues." Global Issues : social, political, economic and environmental issues that affect us all â!! Global Issues. N.p., n.d. Web. 30 May 2011. Similar to the website above, this source talks about the seriousness of the consumerist, materialistic society of today. I could find out about what people put the most value on in their lives. - Wonser, Robert. "Lesson 13: Advertising, Consumerism, and Commodification." canyons.edu. N.p., n.d. Web. 30 May 2011. This source is reliable as the information is well-written in an expert’s point of view. The effects of consumerism on people’s values and thoughts is clearly portrayed here. - http://www.flickr.com/photos/tiarescott/517148389/sizes/m/in/photostream/ - http://www.flickr.com/photos/perry-moore-photography/3586146431/sizes/z/in/ photostream/ - http://www.flickr.com/photos/48126477@N05/4994142554/sizes/l/in/ photostream/ - http://www.flickr.com/photos/golf_pictures/180005220/sizes/o/in/photostream/ - http://www.flickr.com/photos/stickergiant/4538570185/sizes/o/in/photostream/ - http://www.flickr.com/photos/dzaur/2475808554/sizes/z/in/photostream/ - http://www.flickr.com/photos/paalia/2596261424/sizes/o/in/photostream/Tuesday, May 31, 2011
