More and more people want to buy famous brands of clothes, car and other items. Why is it? Do you think it is a positive or negative development?
It is true that there is an increasing number of people purchasing luxurious products of well-known brands. While this phenomenon can be caused by several reasons, I personally believe it would bring more harm than good.Read More
- purchase = mua = buy
- luxurious products = sản phẩm xa xỉ
- well-known brands = thương hiệu nổi tiếng
- bring more harm than good = mang lại nhiều tác hại hơn có lợi
Admittedly, more people buying expensive possessions has resulted from a handful of reasons. Firstly, possessing expensive goods could be considered as a way of showing how rich and fashionable an individual is. For example, affluent students usually drive pricy brand cars such as Mercedes and Ferrari to school, which may make them outstanding and attractive to others. Therefore, people can feel more confident about themselves by doing this. Secondly, some luxurious brands are often regarded of high quality, and this encourages those who have good financial conditions to keep buying these companies’ items. It is apparent that instead of purchasing a product that have a smaller life, people tend to spend a little more money to possess such products which last longer.
- a handful of = a few
- could be considered as = được xem là
- fashionable = thời trang, thời thượng
- affluent = giàu
- are often regarded of = được liên tưởng với, gắn với
- possess = sở hữu
However, I am of the opinion that buying expensive items can be detrimental. To begin with, it is a waste of money because consumers can purchase affordable items with similar functions at a much lower price. For instance, instead of buying an iPhone which costs over 300 dollar, consumers can pay approximately 100 dollar for a Samsung mobile phone, which has the same quality and functions. In addition, rich buyers who own various luxurious possessions are often in danger of being robbed. Some bad guys often look for women and children who carry costly items to rob, and then they can sell them to earn money.Read More
- Detrimental = có hại, xấu
- affordable = có thể chi trả được, phải chăng
- are often in danger of = có nguy cơ
- to be robbed = bị cướp
In conclusion, purchasing costly clothes, cars and other items of famous brands could be caused by a few reasons, and it is my opinion that this phenomenon is negative.
