And these powers promise to change your life as a consumer! This is where we imagine possibilities for our lives through the objects we consume – for example, think of a pair of shoes: what is the difference between a no-name brand of shoes, and a pair of Nike Air Jordan’s? With the Nike’s, associated with an NBA All-Star, you might imagine “success” “prestige” “achievement” for example—there is something, some power, attached to brands that set them apart from their competition.Think about this in your own life—what are the distinctions between wants and needs—what Marx would call “wants of the stomach” (those things you need) and “wants of the fancy” (those things you want)—what clothing products do you need, and what clothing products do you feel you want.
