WRITING TASK 2(AC+GT)

There was a time when people only shopped out of necessity, but these days shopping seems to have become a new form of leisure activity. People don’t appreciate the value of money anymore.

To what extent do you agree with this view?

SAMPLE ANSWER: –

Crisis of the consumer society would argue that today we shop merely to accumulate rather than out of necessity. This has become so much the norm that we now view shopping as a leisure activity. But, is such criticism valid or have we lost our moral compass as we blur the definition between what is a ‘need’ and what is greed?’ Obviously we will always need to shop for the basic or essential items of food or clothing.

However, in today’s material world we no longer just stop for the basics. Rarely do we buy only what we really need. The popularity of designer clothes and luxury food items testify to this. Shopping it, with the exception of only those on a very low income, more of a pastime.

The fact that we can now shop on Sunday, a traditional day of leisure, shows how ingrained the association between shopping and leisure has become in today’s consumerist society. We no longer shop because we have to; we do it because we want to. In addition, traditional shops have been transformed into shopping malls, similar to leisure centres with children’s play areas, bars and cafes, appearing alongside shops, as shopping is transformed into shopping malls, similar to leisure centres with children’s play areas, bars and cafes, appearing alongside shops, as shopping is transformed into a ‘family day out’.

It seems that our attitude towards money has indeed changes. We have immersed ourselves in a culture that spends rather than one that encourages people to save for a rainy day. Unfortunately, this trend seems to be more apparent in younger generations who do not respect the value of money and is therefore unlikely to change in the near future.
