How does Affluenza Work?
Affluenza is a combination of two words; affluence and influenza. Affluence, in this case, refers to wealth, and influenza refers to a strong desire which blinds peoples eye to the adverse effects of their actions.
Affluenza is defined as a culture which upholds materialistic wealth as the ultimate goal of a person, and the biggest achievement one could get in life.
People who are affected with this condition set goals which, after achieving, will push one to other goals because they do not gain satisfaction with the former.
