Believe in magic. Put a song in your heart. Know the power of love. FANTASYLAND Won’t you come on in? Meet all the lonely people. Be there when they discover that dreams that you dare to dream really do come true. Sandi… Shattered by a devastating loss, she’s struggling…

From the shuttered factories of the Rust Belt to the strip malls of the Sun Belt-and almost everywhere in between-America has been transformed by its relentless fixation on low price. This pervasive yet little- examined obsession with bargains is arguably the most powerful and devastating market force of our time, having fueled an excess of consumerism that blights our land­scapes, escalates personal debt, lowers our standard of living, and even skews of our concept of time.
