Ethics and service:

Ethics studies what people should do or not do, what is right or wrong, and what is a good life or a good society. A consumerist ethics answers each of these questions in the following ways:

What should I do or not do?

Primary duty: buying and using goods and services

      1. What should I avoid: overspending or losing money so that I can no longer fulfill my primary duty, which is to buy and use goods and services.
        1. I should never be in a position where I cannot afford to consume.
      2. Regarding our obligations to other people, consumerists believe that other people are fundamentally trading partners. A consumerist community has to have a functioning trade system. But in order to trade, trades need to be successful and sustainable. For that to happen:
        1. I have to understand what the other person wants
        2. I have to deliver what the other person wants
        3. I need to have an attractive personality that makes people want to trade with me
        4. We have to maintain everyone’s trust that trades are fair and good for everyone:
          1. Contracts have to be honored
          2. Prices have to be fair
    1. What is right and wrong, and how can I tell the difference?
      1. Right: to consume and to promote consumption
      2. Wrong: not consuming or making it difficult to consume or trade
      3. We can tell a wrong action b/c it causes bad economic consequences, such as lost time, lost money, lost resources.
    2. What is a good life?
    3. What is a good society?
