Listen
AIR DATE: July 27, 2009

Our obsession with a great bargain and the big discount has become self-destructive, according to Ellen Ruppel Shell. The Atlantic magazine writer says that we're actually wrecking our lives and the planet with foreign goods that aren't even a bargain despite all the hype of big box stores and outlet malls. Shell visited Las Vegas and finds that outlet malls in Las Vegas exemplify the problem of being cheap.
