Affluenza is an American PBS television program and associated book that examines the urge to over-consumption in modern society. It is also the title of the forthcoming book by Clive Hamilton of the Australia Institute. I'm sure that the new book deals with similar issues and comes to similar conclusions, in an Australian context, as the American original. I just think it would have been useful for Hamilton and his co-author to use a different title (even if it had the catchy "affluenza" somewhere in the title) to prevent confusion and show that they didn't make up the word themselves.
