Abstract the dynamics of commercial scenarios, where the companies involved with the offerings of its products, has entailed in the present reinforced by globalization that consumerism is intensively manifested and that entails, to be studied, analyzed in what it represents, taking into account its scope, impacts on people, the same societies in several aspects from the socialpolitical, economic, cultural to name a few. Considerations, basics, background, scope all scholar market, fully identified with this function, should be interested which represents consumerism, everything which covers, as well as their impact. Indicates, that consumerism, is as a form of stimulation not necessary, characteristic of capitalism destined to act as mechanism for sustaining a growing productive activity we have become a society in which the more we have, we want more. Background gives us Wikipedia, in this regard, that consumerism starts its development and growth throughout the 20th century as a direct consequence of the inner logic of capitalism and the emergence of marketing or advertising – tools that encourage consumption generating new needs in consumers-. Consumerism has mainly been developed in the so-called Western world – spread later to other areas – making popular the term created by social anthropology consumer society, referring to the massive consumption of products and services. For Jeremy Rifkin in the 1920s there was an overproduction in United States – motivated by a rise in productivity and a drop in demand (Economics) by the existence of a high number of unemployed due to technological changes – which found the tool in marketing (marketing and advertising) to increase, direct and control the consumption. In relation to the evolution from primitive egalitarian societies to societies of differentiated classes and the passage of the Exchange and reciprocity to accumulation – which reached its apogee in today’s society – says anthropologist Marvin Harris: after the emergence of capitalism in Western Europe, the competitive acquisition of wealth became once again the fundamental criterion to achieve the status of great man. .

The impact of the Greek crisis on the euro what prospects does the euro with Greece about to require the promised rescue? Not the best, considering especially the ad which had caused some hope in the markets, has little credibility. Greece is worse than Argentina in 2001 and that can be very bad news for the euro. The plan approved by European leaders, which includes lending bilateral along with aid from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), as well as being intended to be used as a last resort to Greece, requires unanimity among the 16 eurozone countries so that it can be implemented. Without a doubt, bad news for those who they believed, and believed that this aid to Greece was serious. But everyone wants to support Greece? In reality no, and what worries most is that one of the countries that is not very convinced to do so, precisely is the main country of the block. Germany is without discussion, the main economic engine of the euro-zone. The country is by live regional elections of the next May 9th and no party wants to show their constituents how waste fiscal resources in helping Curran drunkenness of a country that undoubtedly has not done the homework. Conservatively, European diplomatic sources said: we all know that it is impossible for Germany to lend money to Greece before the election.

Must he bear Greece until after regional elections in Germany to fall into a situation of greater danger that ends by defining the help? Mohamed El-Erian in Financial Times, explained why the rescue of Greece was not going under anticipated Rails. The triumphant announcement of Greece, the European Union and the IMF a couple of weeks ago has not served to calm the situation on the markets, nor has contributed to reduce the cost of financing Greek debt.

The bet in Europe failed spectacularly and the escalation of the performance of the Greek obligations makes still more unlikely that Greece can get out of its budgetary black hole without effective help, warned concerned Nick Kounis, Economist at Fortis Bank. The ghost of Argentina fly over Athens titled Digital freedom last Friday, noting that Greece financial position is worse than that recorded in Argentina at the time, as is shown Peter Boone and Simon Johnson, analysts of the Financial Times, and researchers from the London School of Economics and the MIT Sloan School, respectively. Greece is much more debt, much less competitive and need a fiscal adjustment and pay proportionately higher, said analysts polled by Digital freedom in comparison with the situation in Argentina in 2001.
