The High Price of Materialism

The High Price of Materialism by Tim Kasser, published in 2002, examines the relationship between materialism and other extrinsic goals, and how they seem to be rooted in a sense of threat or insecurity. It explores the negative association between materialism and wellbeing (which even seems to show up in people’s dreams); and between materialism and worse ecological and social outcomes.
