Minimalism: The War on Stuff

I have ignored this trend because I have little stuff to begin with. Quite a bit of my stuff have been digitized as well especially the photos, music, videos and of course books. My interest in the growing trend toward minimalism is purely macroeconomic. What if it causes GDP growth to fall? What makes sense for individuals and families sometimes do not for society and the economy. Your job depends on another consumption. I sense some Tragedy of the Commons in the works. I enter this unfamiliar world through this NYT article.
