I have a lot of materialistic interests. I think that most people do. People like cars. They like fashion. Technology. Cosmetics. Shopping. Celebrities. Brand names. There are negative implications surrounding these materialistic interests. There are especially negative implications surrounding people too involved in their materialistic interests. Cue my brother calling me self-absorbed for crying after not liking the results of my impromptu “well Kylie Jenner did it so I should too” haircut. This brings me to my point. Everyone should read the Financial Times blog: Material World.
Material World is a blog devoted to indulging our materialistic interests within a financial frame. The bloggers behind Material World write about topics that seem purely materialistic, transforming these topics into intellectual and stimulating ones. Do I read Material World because I’m interested in Burberry’s new perfume? Or do I read it because I’m interested in Burberry’s unique marketing for their new perfume? The world will never know! So go ahead, treat yourself to some judgment free reading on the
new Tory Burch FitBit competition within the wearable technology sector.
