Description

“They don’t make them like they used to!” Even though that’s something you might hear a parent or grandparent say, there is some truth to the phrase. Unfortunately, there are a lot of products out there that fail prematurely, and it causes us to spend more of our hard earned money. Planned obsolescence is a concept that we’ve heard as consumers, but what does it actually mean? And is all planned obsolescence a terrible thing? In this episode we cover many examples of it, including the notorious sector of consumer electronics. But then we also dive into how we can do our best to avoid spending more money, due to planned obsolescence.
