RE: "I really hate the term 'consumer'"

I'm not fond of the term either, but what I really hate in modern economics is the concept of constant growth, where if you hit a plateau of constant use, but no longer grow, then confidence in your company falls as does your stock price and other abstract concepts only visible on bits of paper and numbers in digital bank accounts. What's wrong in finding a nice comfy niche and just maintaining it where it is?
