American consumerism

The rhetoric grips no more”(TNIE9th sep) is a wonderful article by Gurumurty reflecting the grim realities of America. The American consumerist life style is mainly responsible for the economic crisis that had it’s seeds In US and later infected the rest of the world. Glamour without substance does not deliver the results while substance without show may not win the elections. It will be a prize if the nation gets both. When the expectations run high, the subsequent fall also will be steep. Huge euphoria is bound to be followed by sickness and fever as evidenced in the case of Obama now . Rajiv Gandhi was prey to same syndrome. Though honeymoon period is over Obama has still time to produce results by changing his style and that of his people.
