    PERSBERICHT 4 december 2018 - People who attach great importance to buying or having things are often referred to as ‘materialistic’, which is generally regarded as being a ‘bad’ quality. Most people do not like to be labeled as ‘materialistic’ by others. In her research, PhD researcher Esther Jaspers shows that judging materialism as being ‘bad’ lacks nuance. She shows that buying and possessing things because it gives you pleasure adds to your personal happiness, and that the possession of things as a measure of status and success adds to your financial means as well as your happiness. She will defend her thesis at Tilburg University on Wednesday, December 5.
