Planned Obsolescence of consumer products

A rather amazing documentary on the way modern consumer products are designed to fail. This is a trend that is as old as the industrial revolution and has gone to such proportions today that there is a real awareness spreading to blow the lid of this trend and get consumers to demand a change in our economic model of growth. Well worth watching till the end, as it talks of the sustainable alternatives we need to adopt.
