Affluenza is a fascinating look at one of the greatest social maladies of our time: overconsumption and materialism. Hosted by National Public Radio's Scott Simon, the program explores both the comical and sobering aspects of our consumerism and its enormous impact on families, communities and the environment.

With the help of historians and archival film, Affluenza reveals the forces that have dramatically transformed us from a nation that prizes thirftness - with strong beliefs in "plain living and high thinking" - into the ultimate consumer society.
