Abstract [en]

The concept of 'sustainable consumption' is gaining interest as a key factor of sustainable development. This evokes issues of vested interests in continued economic growth versus change in lifestyle towards a less consumptive balance of work and leisure. It is shown that such a development is attractive to many people. It may still be stalled by various interest groups who actually thrive on an 'organized dissatisfaction'.
