In our December issue, we’re talking “consumption.” (The compulsion, not the disease.)
The Internet is sucking the fun out of holiday shopping… and leaving behind a bunch of credit-card bills.
We continue our talk of debt from last month with a look at America’s most heroic debtor… Turney Duff talks tipping… P.J. shares his fantastic (very bad) gift ideas before Christmas (riderless bike, anyone?)… Alice Lloyd writes about the “Death of Shopping “… and we wonder whether you profited from the “Death of Malls.” (You could have, if you’d been reading this team of analysts.)
Veteran journalist and former presidential speechwriter Andrew Ferguson writes about the reasons behind the “Toy Big Bang“… while Christine Rosen talks the “Explosion of Stuff” and who’s cashing in on it.
P.J. tosses statistics in the wastebasket to talk about consumer trends: what today’s decibel levels, anxiety, traffic jams, and body mass index say about America.
Plus, don’t miss P.J. admit what he’d do with $100 billion.
Finally, we share a conversation with Jason Delgado – sniper, warrior, author, and teacher – while radio host and former CIA analyst Buck Sexton finishes out our issue with a look at what to expect from the Middle East in 2018.
