Unfortunately, it is often more cost effective to buy "cheap crap"
every 2-3 years than it is to buy good quality once, for the same
reason people buy new cars every 3-4 years when they could easily keep
them for 10.
There is nothing cost effective about either practice. It is done simply
because people want something new on a regular basis. They buy the cheap
furniture because it gets to expensive to buy good stuff and throw it out in
a couple of years. As for cars, people are just plain stupid about that. Not
at all unusual to see someone driving a new, expensive car but living in a
low end apartment, furnished by Wal-Mart.
