Stuff -- A Cluttered Life: Middle-Class Abundance (Ep. 1)

12/23/2013; 6 minutes

Why do Americans have so much stuff? And how much is too much? At what point do the toys and objects that fill middle-class homes become overwhelming to the people who live in them? In the first episode of this three-part series, three UCLA social scientists present a stunning, visual ethnography that reveals the material culture of dual-income, child-centered households featured in their new book, "Life at Home in the Twenty-First Century: 32 Families Open Their Doors." (#24699)
