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

Postby 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.

Not likely

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.

I think advertisement should be a main tactic influenced people goes shopping
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.

I think it is in order to our life to need. That is the basic things. Furthermore, most peoples are in order to their desire. Sometimes, we see the other people having something than we want to have those things. This is why we make so much shopping today.
