The sputtering economy is having at least one happy effect on America: It’s making Americans less materialistic. That’s according to a recent survey of 41,175 adults by Zogby Interactive, which found that people are not only buying less stuff, but also giving away more of their possessions. “People are moving toward a simpler, less materialistic lifestyle,” pollster John Zogby said.
