Does anyone else take an interest like me in researching about counterfeit handbag industry? I started looking into how counterfeit bags are produced and how it affects our economy (and the world economy) after several acquaintances expressed their opinions about buying expensive handbags and how they don't see anything wrong with buying a fake since they can't afford it. Sometimes I don't even bother trying to explain the little details of why buying counterfeit bags is wrong, especially since half the time I can't remember the details of how it funds terrorism (and other facts) since these topics are usually brought up while shopping or at dinner and it's the last thing on my mind. I just end up saying something along the lines of, I'd rather spend more money and not feel guilty that it was made in a sweatshop in China. What are your thoughts on this, and what would you say to someone who tries to make you feel bad about buying luxury items?
