These are all good questions that movements like BND try to stimulate. Because economic matters like this are so interrelated and complex, I agree that it's worth considering broader factors like employment, Nox.

To give you my personal approach to the Buying Season, this year, I can tell you that I am trying very much to gift non-material services or value-added items created by independent owner-operators.

For example, I've arranged to hire a photographer friend to take candid holiday shots of our family's Christmas get together, and then will have prints made as gifts; and instead of dropping $20 for a made-in-China printed t-shirt that a million other people will get, I've bought some unique, hand-printed clothing from my favourite sustainable online retailer (who also happens to be a friend).
