The History of Stuff

Ryan had shared this with my other day with me and thought it might be a good resource for others!


“Our willingness to part with something before it is completely worn out is a phenomenon noticeable in no other society in history…. It is soundly based on our economy of abundance. It must be further nurtured even though it runs contrary to one of the oldest inbred laws of humanity, the law of thrift.”

– Industrial designer J. Gordon Lippincott, 1947.
