Particular thanks for narration content to the 2006 BBC production of "Big Ideas That Changed the World: Consumerism", the academic studies cited in the credits, and Erin Janus. Again, this is just a non-profit remix/mashup - with all sources credited, and no copyright infringements (501c3 educational film use).
