Affluenza - de Graaf, John, and Wann, David, and Naylor, Thomas H

The authors define affluenza as "a painful, contagious, virally transmitted condition of overload, debt, anxiety, and waste resulting from the dogged pursuit of more". Behind the wordplay is a serious subject indeed: the increasing deterioration of the natural world in the face of over-consumption.
