RE: Money: The Social-cultural Impact & Influence On An Advancing Society

in Cross Culture3 months ago

Social media is certainly not for the light-hearted or you would find yourself committing crimes just to keep up.

I think the flaunting of money here comes from a belief that you would be more respected if you are rich and most days this belief is true in our society.

Also, if anyone has the mind to say garri right now is for the poor then they aren't in this economy cause the poor can barely afford it.

Nailed it. Another aspect is that even rich people take garri, it stems from liking it and not really because it's for a group of poor people. In reality I believe that the world is changing. Our norms no matter how perfect they might seem has got to change or probably become even better with time.

I seriously doubt that our norms would change in Nigeria, we still have practices that originate from the 80s and 90s so it would take a whole lot to change these.

It would definitely take long like you said. Nigeria isn't organically growing in so many aspects and this is totally pathetic. We aren't moving with the change in the world.

Hopefully, it happens sooner than later.
