Given what you’ve learned in this course about globalization and the global consumer market – and the often unmarked cost in human misery and environmental destruction of our products and lifestyles – write a reflective essay on how your decisions as both citizen and consumer affect the lives of other people around the world. What are the hidden costs of your favorite products (clothing, electronics, food, cars, etc.)? How do these products contribute to ecological destruction (either in one locale or on a grand scale)? What, if anything, could you do to alleviate some of the suffering that the global consumer economy causes, to people and to the planet? Do you feel it’s your responsibility to make such changes to your habits and/or purchasing decisions – why or why not?
Refer to at least three readings and one of the films/documentaries in your discussion. You do not have to provide formal citations or references (unless bringing in a source from outside the class readings and films), but DO refer to authors and films by name when discussing them. There is no minimum or maximum word count for this essay, but most students write 3-4 pages.
