Why do we buy what we buy and what does it all mean?

Coming up, Where We Live, a discusssion with Geoffrey Miller about his new book SPENT: Sex Evolution, and Consumer Behavior.  We'll ask what the product choices we make say about our biological makeup and find out how we can become happier and more conscious consumers.
