The Ride of Your Life
Capitalism on a page - or at least it’s bad side. This info-graphic was inspired by two books: Robert Cialdini’s ‘Influence: the psychology of persuasion’ and Oliver James’s ‘Afluenza’ and intrigued by the fact that people in liberal capitalist societies tend to feel less happy than in many others with significantly (sometimes shockingly) less wealth. This made us think about the role of persuasion industries in that phenomenon. How come that one of the most successful societies ever invented creates such misery? One is for sure - you'll find yourself on this map, waiting for the next bus to come. Enjoy the ride!
