The Impulse Society
America in the Age of Instant GratificationeBook - 2014
Drawing on the fields of economics, psychology, history and political philosophy, Roberts shows how we have become so obsessed with "maximizing returns" that we embrace virtually any means--any technology, personal tactic, or corporate strategy--that can deliver, regardless of consequences. Roberts lays out the history and geography of this new social order and charts a clear pathway toward a different and brighter future.
