(generated from captions) Her success in selective shopping
is empowering

and her prudent style is potentially
a smart strategy for us today.

PACO UNDERHILL: One of the realities
of the recession

that we are just coming out of

is that many of us woke up and found
that our closets were too big,

our cars were too big,
our houses were too big

and our debts were too big.

In other words, we might have desires
but not the money to pay for them.

You know, it's probably not a wise
plan if you're a school teacher

to collect Hermes bags.

Just because you have knowledge
of those brands,

it doesn't mean that
they are rightfully yours.

I believe strongly that we need
to educate our children.

We are educating them
about ecological issues,

we also need to educate them
about consumption.

What began in the 19th-century store
as a ladies' day out

has in the 20th century
been transformed

into a shopping experience

which today defines a modern society.

The department store has been
at the forefront of newvalues,

the recognition of children

and access for everyone
to a middle-class lifestyle.

But the store has also pioneered
a culture of instant gratification

and status anxiety

where throwaway goods, endless
fashion and debt are now the norm.

And we all buy intoit.

SILVIA SAGONA: Every layer
of society

now takes part
in this shopping experience -

buying things, which, by definition,
you don't need,

but which you have to have
to make you feel sufficient.

I buy, therefore I am.

These are the two points on which he has staked his presidency. The 48-hour or cease- fire between Hamas and Israel continues to hold. This was a fatal shooting of a Palestinian man.
