Why We’ve Had Enough of Stuff

As Christmas approaches it brings with it the usual frenzied round of shopping. But think back to last year, when you exchanged gift-wrapped boxes with friends and relatives. As you opened the packages, was your gut reaction ever to think… “not more stuff”?

James Wallmann, journalist and trend forecaster, visits the RSA to explain why more and more people are suffering from “stuffocation”.
