Summary
An Atlantic correspondent uncovers the true cost--in economic, political, and psychic terms--of our penchant for making and buying things as cheaply as possible, providing evidence that "buying cheap" has resulted in a host of socioeconomic ills that include a blighted landscape, escalating debt (both personal and national), stagnating incomes, and fraying communities
