ccording to David Suzuki, a famous Canadian environmentalist activist and author, “Our personal consumer choices have ecological, social, andspiritual consequences. It is time to re-examine some of our deeply heldnotions that underlie our lifestyles.” It is of paramount importance to know that society has become consumerist asa result of advertising and this result in the creation of false consciousness in theminds and lives of consumers. We now identify ourselves with the products webuy and thus our brands are now symbols of who we are. As some scholars havesaid, we are what we consume and this being the case, it implies that we need tobuy in order to become.Consumer News Magazine is there not only to protect the needs of consumersby alerting and informing consumers on such subliminal aspects targeting their money, but we want to create a space for the producers and policy makers torespond to certain questions and issues of concern amongst consumers.Needless to emphasize that everyone, regardless of our societal positions and
qualications, is a consumer at a point in time. Thus we are the public sphere for
the discussion of all consumer related issues of any nature.In this edition, we thus retain our regular columns and introduce a new initiative in the tourism industry in Namibia, which will enable Namibians tounderstand the importance of tourism to their standard of living and to theeconomic, social and environmental development of the country.May you enjoy reading the pages of our magazine. Until we meet again……..
