Any discussion about consumption is tempered with the knowledge that there are children starving. I was brought up with this in the background; on charity hoardings, blared from the radio, as an admonition from mother if you didn't like something on your plate.

Yet, while conspicuous consumption continues unabated, there are an estimated 2.8 billion people living on less than $2 a day and more than a billion people who lack reasonable access to safe drinking water.
These figures are shocking but, because we've been able to conduct our lives behind this safety fence with regular droughts and famine happening somewhere else, we're enured to it.
