In the face of turmoil and uncertainty, we feel more powerful when we can go back to basics and eat an egg laid by our own hen, or actively choose to find solace away from digital demands without junking them completely. We want to get that thing or service seamlessly and easily. We want to make a difference in the world by buying more thoughtfully. We want to look after ourselves and sidestep the experts, by taking up the reins of knowledge and driving the consumer conversation more than ever.
