Brett Marston on Shopping
Fellow Davidson alum Marston points out that Germany is slowly moving towards the U.S. culture of 24-hour shopping. While the new German law that allows states to keep their shops open on Saturday until 8 p.m. is only a marginal change, it is a loss. And as Marson writes, "Law also has an expressive function. Laws that indicate that there is more to life than shopping are, as far as I'm concerned, a good thing." I concur.
