"Good thing you realize this and early.  I can't say much as to the cause of this sense of entitlement but I sure see it. One thing that you can pretty much take to the bank is that hard work and talent can still get you places.…"

"Chuck,   I agree.  I would love to purchase things that last longer even if they cost more.  I'm tired of Chinese, and other, crap ending up just costing me more when they break.  I was putting up some ornamental ironwork in…"

"I have been living a very minimalist life for the last few years, which means I buy not for just quality, utility, and durability but reflect on what I am going to buy based on what I want and what I need. Right now I guess I don’t need…"

"I feel the same way. Along with the consumer culture, we've developed into a disposable goods culture, which obviously bolsters the consumerism. Even our pop culture icons have become disposable (American Idol and the like; think about it).…"

"Very true.  I get the sense of shifting values and a sense of entitlement.  Not sure about how things are playing out right now. But in the past few years some of the best trained engineers went back overseas and others went into heavy…"

"I think you are correct in that part of the equation is low prices versus jobs.  But there is also a value aspect as well. People buy a cheap item made in Asia that lasts a little while and then gets tossed.  In many categories there are…"

"Well, we have also ceded responsible use of our country's excellent higher education opportunities to young people, from other countries, who are willing to do the work.  "

"I'm no economist, but it seems pretty obvious (to me, at least) that part of our economic 'crisis' is in part due to many manufacturing jobs moving to China (among other foreign lands). I get it, we want low prices, but at what other…"
