Consumer Politics in Postwar JapanThe Institutional Boundaries of Citizen Activism【電子書籍】[ Patricia Maclachlan ]

<p>Providing comparisons to the United States and Britain, this book examines Japan's postwar consumer protection movement. Organized largely by and for housewives and spurred by major cases of price gouging and product contamination, the movement led to the passage of basic consumer protection legislation in 1968.

<p>Consuming with a conscience is one of the fastest growing forms of political participation worldwide. Every day we make decisions about how to spend our money and, for the socially conscious, these decisions matter. Political consumers "buy green" for the environment or they "buy pink" to combat breast cancer. They boycott Taco Bell to support migrant workers or Burger King to save the rainforest.<br /> But can we overcome the limitations of consumer identity, the conservative pull of consume

Architecture & Design versus ConsumerismHow Design Activism Confronts Growth【電子書籍】[ Ann Thorpe ]
