Can we afford the consumer economy?

Jun 7, 2013
Marketplace will spend a week looking at all aspects of the consumer economy -- from businesses to workers to shoppers -- and ask: Can we keep going at this rate?
Posted In: consumer, consumer spending

What's worth spending more money on?

We all have priorities -- some of us have a weakness for shoes, while others scrape together pennies to pay for our (future) child's college education.

We want to know what kind of purchases matter to you: What's worth spending a little more for?

Tell us by tweeting to @MarketplaceAPM or posting on our Facebook page. You can also leave comments below.

About this collection

You hear it a lot: For the economy to get better, we all have to spend more. Consumer confidence, consumer spending, consumer interest, consumer debt.... it's the consumer economy. But didn't spending too much get us in trouble a few years ago? Can we afford the consumer economy? Marketplace explores how we consume, what we get from it, what it costs, and whether we can keep it up.
