As for Russia the answer is simple - people are more well-off than they used to be in 80's and 90's. Oil and metals are expensive and revenue from their export is huge. That results in better salaries for many Russians and they can afford spending lots of money.

Besides plenty of supermarkets have been built here in large cities and it has become easy to do shopping. I even think that appearence of supermarkets changed the way we buy. One just takes a shopping cart, walks around a huge shop and buys whatever they see.

Finally there is another thing that contributes to increase in spending here in Russia but it is rather negative. For last five years real estate prices have increased significantly. As a result even if a family belongs to the midlle class and is quite well-off it often can't save enough money to make a down payment for a property. So they are made to put off buying real estate for a while and as a result have more money to spend on food and other things.

The more unhappy u are, the more u need to pollute. The more u pollute the more unhappy u are.

The whoole marketing nowdays is build up for pollution. They make products that don't extend more than noted in warranty. It's amazing what ~ they produce. Of course they do better things too, but then they have "pro" in front of name and increased price. Sometime seems it is worked hard to make good thing worst..

But main reason why people buy is that they are depressed. they don't know how to be happy.

what makes to do shopping so much

Post by Lac » Sat Jan 06, 2007 4:33 am

Do shopping is a kind of entertainment. Of course, people could puchase anything they want through a great deal of diversified services on the internet and they just stay home to order materials they require. However, doing shopping has another significant meaning in which the customers can pratically touch, see, watch all of the necessary stuff in the sale . In addition, the atmosphere in the market itself is still something that attacts buyers to call at.
But i dont think doing shopping would be pervasive if man was busy all the time. As said above, you have lots of reasons to order anything at home instead of going out.
Some of you say it's the better life that makes people going much more shopping. Correct! And also it's a well-to-do life that enables people tie them up with interest in their own business rather than shopping.
Anyway, doing shopping is an amusement for meetings, talks. On my part, however, oh i dislike going shopping . That's the duty of my wife. :lol: :lol:

Yeah, like my uncle when he first came to the States two years ago, he bought anything he could buy with his first paycheck. After a year, he started to sell them to others since he didn't have enough space in his room and didn't need them at all. Now he's started to realize he only needs to buy what he needs, not what he doesn't need even though it is cheap.

Things are more affordable then it was before; therefore, people tend to buy what they don't even need-- it's the case of Ebay products or garage sale, I believe. That's why they sell them to others with cheaper price. And people who couldn't afford the original price can now buy those products. Henceforth, the shopping circle keeps going. [Yell out: I love shopping, by the way!] :twisted:

I think shopping isn't suitable for me, it's a waste of time to walk around for many hours just to buy
clothes, jewelry, or something like that. My mother or my girlfriend often do this for me.

Firstly, people are becoming richer, they have more money to spend.
Secondly, products nowaday are more diversified not only in appereance but also in purpose. So people now have more choices. You can see that cellphone company continually introduce their new design with new services. Or tendency of fashion changes according to time.
And people don't want to be left behind. They get bored with the old ones and keep their eyes on the newer. Especially for the rich, who have so much money to spend, they always like unique things. To some extend, shopping is a way to show how generous they are.

my guess is that they think materials will make them happy. or maybe they think their worth goes hand in hand with the stuff they have.,,

but anyways, everyone has a different reason for that..

shoping

Post by NehaRajput » Wed Jan 24, 2007 8:06 am

I think the things that make us to shop more and more, are following which have very high influnces on our lives.
media,
advertisements
posters.
glamour
and much more. BY seeing all this daily, we wish to have all this stuf too, whether necessary for us or not. WE just by seeing all this want to buy them.
And also for sake of being better than others , being glamourous, and fashionable, we buy numbers of useless things, and spend our money.

All people do not shopping more in the world. For example, in China, people prefer to save their money in bank, stock market and other invest ways.

Why do people in other countries do more shopping? Because those countries have better welfare system so that the people do not need to worry about their future medicare fee, their children's education and other unexpected expanse. As a result, when they get money in hand, they spend them.

I think it's anthropological and solicial problem or it's humans's attributes.you know we tend to draw comparison with others,so when you dress not good,you want to win.what's more,when you are free you got sth to do ,shopping is a good way to kill time.

I am an indian,india is a developing country. The people are becoming rich day by day. We are looking that they want change in their life. They are getting good education and earn a lot of money. In the present time we are looing many shopping mall and complex. People have a lot of money and they want to spend the money. The desire to spend the money is day by day increasing. That's the reason they want to more shopping.

from the answers posted by others,people tend to think going to shopping is the the result of getting rich and desiring to live well.but in my opinion,it's just the facial(on the surface) clues,in word and deed,it's deposition,we know,some people are very rich but dislike shopping ,they hate the bargaining,hate shuttling in the supermarkets,but you will say most people like shopping especial girls.Right,that's because most people are common persons and the girls' characteristic are different for mens'.

Still you go shopping my friend. The difference is you don't want to spend much time to do it. The essence is the same dude. But on this case, you do not go shopping directly to the shop. You get someone to do it for you. What a good strategy!!!


Next, I'd like to invite any body in this forum to reduce our shopping habit on unimportant things. We should buy something because we need it, not because we want it. Before we buy something, we should ask ourselves "Do I really need this thing?" or "Do I just want it?". So let's buy something because we need it.

My friend, what selfish creatures we are when we go shopping uncontrollably while there are thousands or maybe millions of people who are starving to death.
Why don't we put side some of our money for them, the needy.

There are perfect women in Tv and all press.They wear nice and attrack most of the men. This influences our own relationships.Woman wants to be the one, man wants perfect woman so people go shopping to be the perfect one.I think shopping is not a simple topic, it is a sociological problem

Well, I think, this crazy shopping epidemic is fueled by the advertisment. Coulorful, funny, attractive, advertisments appeal to our inner intentions or better to say to our complexes. They show us that we are not as perfect as people on screen or in a picture. It's the essential intention to improve oneself in order to be stronger, prettier, healthier and happier. So why not to buy a new perfume or a new car, when a voice- over promises that the thing will make so good. However, it really works for some people. Unfortunately, I'm not one of them :-?

Among others, there are such reasons as - the desire to show off (we live in a society with the ideology of conspicuous consumption, don't you think so?), and a psychological aspect of the process (for example, shopping is essential for most of women as it uplifts their mood)...

Nowadays, people earn more money than 80', 90'. They have enough for their normal life. People in my country often say: "This is not the time of fully eating, warmly wearing. Deliciously and model are instead of old people thinking"
There are a lot of markets, supermarket, commercial centrals and malls also help people approach with as less distance as possible. People can find everything they need in short time, with the most model, lastest technology of product.
Another reason that make consumer easy pickup commodity is PR (Public Relation) which too many promotable campaign to encourage people come to market.
For most consumer's psychology, shopping are the most relaxing method after full weekday working. To go to market, with air conditioner, music let people exciting, relaxing. Moreover, people feels happy when they carry new things to home.
In conclusion, consumption is the important core that making social improvement.

Shopping can makes people feel happy and satisfied also can help business activities and economic grow up. People need some requisites so we have to buy that then go to shopping. I love shopping too. For example, the item we buy cosmetic, dress, skin care product etc. These things for woman have irresistible power.

If you want to cost money or just window shop, you don’t need to go too far. There are many department stores in Taipei. If all these are too expensive for you, just is patient. In a short time, you will probably find a similar style of the jeans you want in a less expensive store.

There are variety method from the newspaper or TV to promote the goods on the advertisement, which includes bargain price、 buy one free one、coupon…etc.
The people were attracted shopping not only in his needs but cheaper items that will be used so far.

to me shopping is two; buying what you need and what you don't. it is accepted that you buy what you need when you need, but of course these days people buy many things that they don't require and they call it fun, I would say this is just the influence of information on us, for instance where I live people seek the products they watch on TVs to sort get along with the so called modren life. some others imitate the lifestyles of celebrities and people living in wealthy countries. and this is all the bad about information in other wards

First of all, the higher your incomes the more your pay. Because of your higher income, you can afford for what you want, so you will go shopping more. In addition, shopping is a kind of entertainment especially for women. it is so funny that i do shopping whenever I'm tired or sad until I'm broken and then i feel better.
Second of all, the sellers have a lot of ways to attract people to buy products such promotion, after sale services, so on. The buyers feel the products are cheaper, so they are willing to pay whether they need or not.

from my experience, as a married man & a government employee: the credit card facilities makes me do a lot of shopping.
It's true that at these you could find a lot of things you like to buy but without available money, you couldn't buy anything.

According to me, people do a lot of shopping (buying things that aren't necessery at all) because it's a way of trying to get satisfation, apart from their income.
Nowadays people are more and more busy and stressed, and their relationships with others more and more frail and superficial, so they need something that can fulfil their "empty" lives and shopping does this, it makes you feel better (even though for a little).
Moreover, other main reasons that lead to unnecessary shopping are: fashion and advertaising.
Advertising pushes people to need useless things or clothes that not even fit them just because is what the current fashion calls "must have".
As well as this, better life conditions, spreading of cheaper shops, online shops and credit cars make it very easy and within (almost) everybody reach.

Actually I would love to hear words about this issue from people living in other countries besides Korea since Suth Korea is emerging as one of the most "luxury friendly" places in the world as country's growing wealth mixes with arising tide of shopping-minded tourists as various survey shows.

Additionally, a deep tradition of craft-oriented trades in the country has created a respect for very fine products. Also, media reveals the results of the survey that there's many consumers felt a difference in luxury goods from other products in many ways.

So luxury retailers in Sounth Korea drew tourist shoppers from Japan and China in huge numbers during the past year, when the Korean won was sharply lower against other major currencies.

With this atmostphere, people are getting more into buying luxury goods and peopl who are not buying any luxury goods almost feel outcast in the nation.

What do you think about this trend? How is your country? Share some words with us.

Hope to hear from you soon.

In my opinion many people buy different things from boredom and too much money in your wallet. They buy more and more things that others drew attention to them. Fewer and fewer are those people who go to the store just something you currently need.

According to me, people do a lot of shopping because there are different discounts and bargains in every place where you can buy something. It cause that people buy some things and usually these are things which they do not need, but they bought it because it was at a good price. Moreover one of crowd-puller is an offer/promotion when you can buy 3 things and pay just for 2 or something similar, then people look for this third one to get discount.
People too often do shopping impulsively...

In my opinion people go shopping becouse now there are a lot of beautiful things. On tv there are colorful advertisement which say: you have to have it! From time to time there are sales where you can buy cheaper things which you don't need but you buy it becouse they can be useful in the future.

In my point of view people do so much shopping in these days because they want to have everything that they enjoyed. What is more when we go to the shop we sometimes fall for the promotions which in the fact are not very different from the initial price. And last but not least nowadays in every city there are a lot of billboards which encourage young people to buy things which they do not need.

In my mind everything nowadays is more available and everywhere is a lot of shops. We see tousands of advertisment every day. It makes that we become addicted to do shopping, even we are not aware.
