Hello from a fellow former Arthur Andersen employee. Great post! Thanks for sharing your experience and insights!

What a superb post and crucial topic. Human beings seem to have a bit of a tendency toward acquisitiveness, but the gigantic corporate marketing machine pour millions into figuring out how to get you (and your kids who are more and more targeted) to feel like life and you just aren't enough unless you get the next thing "you've got to have". I love Juliet Schore's investigative reporting on this. Her book on marketing to kids is wonderful.

That's quite a story you've got. Hopefully some of us can learn from it rather than though the that same hardship ourselves.
